I will be doing the scenic design for my first "non-USC" related production! Theatre Americana's production of Mary of the Avenue is a quirky new musical written by Neil Scanlan and Greg Wood, directed by Donna Scarantio. I am so excited to be working on great productions and opportunities, such as this, while I am still in school!
More great news! I will be Assistant Set Designer to the talented Jeff Hyde for The Repertory East Playhouse's production of 9 to 5, which runs July 12- August 17. This will get me ready for my first Set Deign at The REP for the production of Woody Allen'sPlay It Again Sam, which runs November 15- December 14th. I am so excited for these great opportunities right when I graduate from USC! The REP just got voted one of the 6 Best Dramatic Theatres in L.A. by the 2012 Los Angeles Times readers poll, and I am amazed that I get to work for them!
Another semester and year is coming to a close, but a lot of great things are set up for my last semester at USC. I will be doing the set design for the USC School of Dramatic Arts production of Museum by Tina Howe, which runs April 25th-28th. I will also be the set designer for the independent student written production of Wind In The Pines by Kyungseo Min, which runs February 23rd and 24th.
I will have a gallery show in the Lindhurst South Case, Abandoned Subconscious, which is open from January 27th- February 2nd. And I have been asked by the set design faculty at USC to present my work in their showcase in May. I am so excited to have these opportunities and will hopefully end my college experience with a bang!
