Izz Sumono is the Senior Production Executive at Checkpoint Theatre.
Izz Sumono has worked primarily in stage management for theatre productions and live events, and is Senior Executive of Production at Checkpoint Theatre. A Victorian College of the Arts graduate, Izz began her career in the industry as a dresser. This sparked her passion to pursue production and backstage work, and she honed her skills under Esplanade’s Stage Management Training Programme. During the pandemic, she has had the opportunity to navigate the art of live-streaming digital works, but her first love will always be live productions. Recent credits with Checkpoint Theatre include Session Zero (2021), Keluarga Besar En. Karim (The Karims) (2021), Eat Duck (2019), and Normal (2017). Izz likes to be challenged, and feels that no show is a ‘simple’ show, no matter how small.
