Greenbrier Valley Theatre
I am elated to have accepted an AEA Assistant Stage Management contract with Greenbrier Valley Theatre in Lewisburg, WV.
So far this season, we've taken on Forever Plaid and Next to Normal, and I'm excited to 'travel' to Lousiana for Steel Magnolias next!
I'll be taking a short hiatus and heading back to Wisconsin to plan and execute Topel's Towing & Repair's 75th Anniversary Event. In late October, I'll return to Lewisburg for GVT's traveling Christmas Show - A Christmas Carol!
Into the Woods, Jr.
This past fall, I acted as stage manager for an all ages production of Into the Woods, Jr. at First Parish Church in Saco, ME. It was so fun to journey back 'into the woods' with this fun and energetic cast!
Portland Theater Festival
Over the Summer of 2022, I served as one of three rotating stage managers for the first ever Portland Theater Festival, produced by East Shore Arts and Mayo Street Arts. Following the success of East Shore Arts' The Aliens during the summer of 2021, PTF aims to bring "diverse, inclusive, and exceptional professional theater to the City of Portland. Locally staffed and incubating, PTF offers cutting-edge performances in intimate and found spaces with the aim of promoting a more mindful, more compassionate, and more harmonized community in Maine."

Portland Stage - Stage Management Internship
In August 2021, I started a nine-month stage management internship at Portland Stage in Portland, Maine. Their season was composed mostly of new works, and I was excited to be delving more into the artistic process that surrounds a new theatrical piece.
In September, we opened the world premiere of Perseverance by Callie Kimball. I worked as a production assistant and deck chief alongside Equity Stage Manager Myles C. Hatch. You can find more on the show here in a review from the Portland Phoenix.
In November, we began rehearsal for Portland Stage's 25th production of A Christmas Carol. Though we had to cancel our in-person performances of the show due to COVID-19, we were able to record a digital performance of the show. More information about the show can be found here in a review from Broadway World.
In 2022, I filled in as a production assistant in the rehearsal room in the creation of Portland Stage's Senior Living, as well as recently working backstage on Portland Stage's latest new work, Last Ship to Proxima Centauri: "In this Clauder Competition-winning futuristic sci-fi, planet Earth has become uninhabitable. The last escape ship from Earth arrives at its new home centuries after all the others. The pilots are not prepared for what they find there." More information from Broadway World and Portland Press Herald.
I concluded my season with Portland Stage with their long awaited production of Sabina: a new musical about Sabina Spielrein, a student of Carl Jung's whose ideas would change psychoanalysis forever. Through her research, she brought Jung and Freud together and served as a feminist pioneer of her industry. More on the show from Broadway World and the Portland Press Herald.

A Little More About Me
I love going kayaking on Rock Lake, in my hometown of Lake Mills, WI.
Fall is my favorite season! Evidenced here at a corn maze in Maine.
Cows are one of my favorite animals - Wisconsin born and raised!
