What role(s) do you play at the BSP?
I’m the Properties Master and Light Board Operator/ Technician.

How long have you been involved in theatre?
I got started in theatre when I was in the 6th grade (about 7 years ago). I decided to try out for Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre and fell in love with it immediately. I continued with theatre in Bigfork throughout high school and in the middle of my junior year I decided to try the technical side of theatre. I then realized that I loved that part of theatre even more, and decided that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
I’ve been working spot light in BSP for 4 years, but this is my first professional year.

Rebecca Sewell from Bigfork, Montana -- on theatre stage.What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time in Bigfork?
Since I grew up in Bigfork, my whole family lives here, so whenever I get time off I like to spend some time with them. Several of my friends are on their summer break from college, so I spend time with them, too. I also love swimming in the lake, even though it is really cold. (Editor’s note: Flathead Lake averages 62 degrees on the surface during summer month so Rebecca’s not kidding when she says it’s cold!)

What else would you like to add?
I just finished my first year at the University of Montana pursuing a degree in Theatre with a focus on Stage Management.
