Sean Holmes Management / About
The founder Sean Holmes was brought up by a doting mother who was a cabaret singer and a loving father, a theatrical agent Bob Holmes who managed the likes of Tammy Jones who had a top 20 hit in the seventies with “Let Me Try Again” as well as managing a number of comedians in light entertainment in theatres and television including Johnny Moore and JJ Stewart and brought back a South African troope who performed at Wembley Conference Centre known as Mzumba, amongst a host of musical theatre stars including Ria Jones who still appears as a lead in the west end in almost every imaginable musical ever written.
Sean being immersed into theatre from a young age went on to train in musical theatre at Bodyworks Dance Studios in Cambridge and he performed in a UK tour of Fame as well as appearing in Casualty on BBC television. His love of the theatre took him to working at The Kings Head Theatre in Islington and worked on shows including Kvetch with Steven Berkoff and Anita Dobson as well as on musical theatre reviews by Anthony Newley and Vivien Ellis. This led to Sean working in the West End at the Garrick Theatre and on musical theatre shows including Starlight Express, Cats and Whistle Down The Wind.
About Sean Holmes
Having been brought up in a theatrical family Sean first visited the theatre in 1977 and found the whole theatrical experience completely exhilarating and knew from an early age that this is where his heart was and it breathed theatrical blood into his veins, so to speak. He talks fondly of his memories in seeing musical theatre and fringe plays and the early theatre shows at the seaside piers, when they were still around. HIs love and knowledge not to mention his passion for the industry separate him from his peers and it is this passion that drives Sean Holmes Management Limited to create a culture of love and respect amongst the artists who are represented. His ethos is one of personal management as opposed to being a number and being on hand whenever required sets him apart from traditional agencies in London and further afield.
Message from our founder
“I want to carry on the family tradition of offering personal management to up and coming artists and developing their careers to heights they could never imagine.
Each time I try to leave theatre my passion brings me back which is why I have started a brand new talent agency in London to live my dream of becoming a theatrical agent and illustrate my uniqueness in gaining employment for my actors.”
MENTAL HEALTH CHARTER: #TIME4CHANGE
#Time4Change aims to create a safe, supportive, inclusive and positive environment for everyone.
Mental health problems are more common among performers than the general population. Every year one in three of us will experience mental health problems. And yet it still continues to be something that we avoid talking about or admitting to ourselves. It is time for this to change for good.
