About Me

Hi! My name is Megan Messinger, and I’m (slowly) assembling a proper website — in the mean time, long story short, there wasn’t enough stage combat on the internet in 2009 and ::poof!:: A blog was born.

I’ve choreographed and co-choreographed about twenty shows, mostly Shakespeare and new plays,  including fights with broadswords, foils, fists, knives, spears, and that one with copper pipes and a 15-foot chain. I’ve studied with the Society of American Fight Directors and assistant-taught stage combat classes under Dave Maier at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre and St. Mary’s College. After several years in New York City and stints in southwest Ireland and the San Francisco Bay Area, I now live near L.A.

Forgive periods of silence! I try to post once a month, but I’m also in medical school these days and it’s a bit of a blog-killer.

    This page lacks your name and contact information.

    Thanks for the cool blog about stage combat, though!

    Really awesome page, Megan. I laughed a lot on your “Seven Ways Stage Combat Prepared Me for Parenthood” page.
