Becki Zarinsky – Stage Manager

Becki_Zarinsky_Head_ShotWelcome back to Becki Zaritsky, Stage Manager from Philadelphia, PA! This is Becki’s second season with the Bigfork Summer Playhouse and we’re thrilled to have her back. Get to know Becki below!

What role(s) do you play at the BSP this season?
I am the Stage Manager for Man of La Mancha and Annie, and I’m the Assistant Stage Manager for The Addams Family and Footloose. I also work in the scene shop on properties.

Becki_Zarinsky_Photo_2How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
This is my second season with BSP. I interviewed with Don Thomson  at UPTAs, a theatre conference in Memphis, in February 2014, and the rest is history! There is no company or community like Bigfork. BSP allows me to challenge myself and grow as a theatre artist in a community that is so supportive and appreciative of the arts.

Please share your personal history with theatre.
I started acting when I was in 3rd grade, and primarily did that through college. Halfway through my college career I starting doing stage management, and since graduating from Temple University in 2013 I’ve been fortunate enough to continue to work in the arts. I spent the year after graduating in Philly as a freelance theatre artist, and this past year I was a Stage Management Apprentice at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Florida.

Becki_Zarinsky_Photo_3What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork?
To be outdoors! Last summer I made many trips to Glacier National Park, Jewel Basin, and spent a few sunny days at Wayfarers and on Flathead lake. As much time as I can spend outdoors, I will!

What are your plans after the BFSP season ends?
Stay tuned! Nothing has been finalized as of yet, but I’ve got a few prospects lined up.

Anything else you’d like to add?
I’ve got a huge sweet tooth. Before the show you can often find me in the lobby with a chocolate chip cookie.
