About Us

Stage Presence was started in 1999 by Kathy West.
Two years previously, after many years of dancing, chorus work and choreography, Kathy had enjoyed her first lead role, as Charity in 'Sweet Charity'. Frustrated by being unable to find appropriate cards and gifts for her fellow cast members, a seed of an idea was planted and started to germinate......

After 2 years of research, Stage Presence was born.

Initially, we mailed an 8 page catalogue to a small mailing list. Things started to grow until eventually, by 2007, we were mailing a 28 page catalogue to thousands of people.

The internet has revolutionised the mail-order business, and we no longer produce a catalogue. We are now able to introduce new goods throughout the year, often after requests from our customers.

Kathy is still heavily involved in amateur theatre - these days she is more often found directing than acting, and her passion for all things theatrical remains just as strong as ever.
We are known (among other things) for our extensive range of exclusively designed show-specific gifts. Many of these items are designed by talented graphic designer Kevin Heasman.

Kevin has a long association with amateur theatre, having been involved since university, and even meeting his wife in a show. His passion for theatre extends through acting, singing, directing, set design, and promotional artwork creation. Through the latter, he began work with Stage Presence - over a decade has passed and he still loves the challenge of adding a new visual twist to classic shows. Taking this artwork to the next level, Kevin is venturing out as an illustrator for hire as Dynamo Doodles www.kevinheasman.carbonmade.com
