Assistant Stage Manager and Properties
What is your personal history with theatre?
I started acting when I was in 4th grade at my synagogue. I was heavily involved with my middle school and high school’s musicals, and in May of 2013 I graduated from Temple University with a BA in Theatre.
While at Temple, I interned for two theatre companies in Philadelphia, and I was also fortunate to intern with a theater company in London when I studied abroad my junior year. Since graduating in May 2013, I have continued to work with theatre companies in Philadelphia, as well as New York.
This is my first season with Bigfork Summer Playhouse! I attended UPTAs in Memphis this past February where I met Don and inquired about the Assistant Stage Management position he was looking to fill. And, here I am!
What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork?
Though I’ve been to Glacier National Park, it was only for an hour or so, so I’m looking forward to spending more time there!
What are your plans after the BFSP season ends?
I will be the season-long Stage Management Apprentice with Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, FL.
