Antonia first began teaching almost by accident at the then Welsh College of Music and Drama in 1998 where she quickly discovered that she loved sharing her passion and knowledge. She has gone on to teach at a number of institutions in the UK, Hong Kong, China and America. Other academic roles have included Head of Learning and Teaching and chairing numerous committees and exam boards. Antonia has also been an external reviewer for LAMDA, Bath Spa and Backstage Academy in the UK.
Alongside her teaching Antonia has continued to work on high profile shows as both a Showcaller and CSM/PSM. For a number of years Antonia was regularly involved in awards and dinners for the Professional Golfers' Association including the opening gala for the Ryder Cup in 2010.
In 2017 Antonia was the PSM for the National Day event at Dubai Festival City Mall culminating in a show for 55,000 spectators.
In 2009 began a collaboration with GDS that would lead to the development of their SM console and cue lights - CueSystem. Over a period of 9 months Antonia offered advice and support and regularly demonstrated the products to stage managers and theatre consultants. Cue System is now produced by ETC in America and installed in venues across the world.
Antonia continues to work with ETC on developing the system concentrating on the needs of the end user.
