Stephen Found


Starting his involvement in the theatre in the 1970’s with Strand Electric Stage Lighting, Stephen went on to co-found Bytecraft in 1984, building theatre infrastructure and lighting systems around the world.

After divesting Bytecraft, Stephen’s company Foundation Theatres acquired full ownership of the Capitol Theatre in 2009, followed by the Sydney Lyric in 2011. Under Stephen’s stewardship, the theatres have become thriving operations programmed well into the future with a wide variety of commercial theatre productions sourced from around the globe.

Stephen has previously served on Boards of ABAF (2009-2015), Creative Partnerships Australia (2013-2015), Australian Centre for Moving Image (2001-2006) and Rally Australia (2010 – 2020).
