Where are you from?
Have you worked with SpeakEasy prior?
Yes, BIG FISH will be my 27th show with SpeakEasy. I have worked in many capacities including as a Production Intern, Production Assistant and Associate Production Manager.
Could you tell us a bit about the role you are playing?
Yes, Big Fish will be my 27th show with SpeakEasy. I have worked in many capacities including as a Production Intern, Production Assistant and Associate Production Manager.
What are you looking forward to in this process?
I am most excited about the people I will get to work with. On a large scale musical like Big Fish it takes many people to mount a show of this size. There will be 6 crew members working backstage to keep the show running and it will take a lot of hard work and coordination to make it all happen.
Can you share a favorite memory of a parent?
My parents have always been very supportive of my goals to work as a stage manager in theatre and have come to see most of the shows that I have worked on starting back when I was in high school. Which seems silly since they have never actually seen me on stage but it really shows how much they care about my passion.
