Roxana Khan is an AEA stage manager based between Los Angeles and New York City.
Roxy grew up in Orange County, California, and received her BA in Drama and English Literature from Biola University, where she graduated as a part of the Lambda Pi Eta Honors Society. She also studied at Roehampton University in London, England. During a summer internship with the Laguna Playhouse in theatre education, she staged managed for the first time on a production of Godspell. After just a few weeks on the job, she quickly realized her calling and has continued to stage manage for a decade.
In 2011, she joined the FAIR program as an apprentice at the Tony-Award winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival, where she was hired on the stage management team that same season. Roxy worked for five years in rotating repertory at OSF, where she earned her AEA card working on musicals, Shakespeare, classics and new work, including four world premieres. Favorite productions include Into the Woods, directed by Amanda Dehnert; The Tenth Muse written by Tanya Saracho and directed by Laurie Woolery; and Guys and Dolls, directed by Mary Zimmerman. In addition to main stage productions, she was involved in the Black Swan Lab new work program, the annual Daedalus HIV/Aids benefit, and also served as a backstage tour guide.
She has worked in the greater Los Angeles area at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, South Coast Repertory, Pasadena Playhouse, the Theatre at Boston Court and The Blank Theatre. On the east coast, she has recently stage managed at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, Westport Country Playhouse and off-broadway at Primary Stages and The Public Theater in New York City.
When she's not wearing a headset, Roxy loves to cook and bake, and can usually be found watching the latest Masterpiece Theatre on PBS. She's also been known to coordinate a wedding or two.
