Briefly describe how you would contribute to implementing the goals of the Theatre Arts Student Council.
My own personal goals regarding any project or club I’ve done at Marymount has always been to create more opportunities to build community in my concentrations. I came from a very large and involved high school program where I was able to throw myself into the department. We were always working and there was always something new to learn or work on, all you had to do was volunteer. Regarding TASC I would love to help create more events that help build that sense of community here at Marymount.
Briefly describe your relevant past experience that would support your work as a representative on the Theatre Arts Student Council.
In terms of practical skills I have that would be useful to TASC, I have experience running social media for theatre companies, I have worked as a stage manager in over fifteen shows and festivals, and recently I have directed and produced several zoom events and shows.
At Marymount I’ve worked with Kenny Finkle and the playwriting department to put on festivals such as the Fresh Baked Play Fest and the 48 hour Play and Musical festivals. In regards to the open position for sophomore playwriting representative, I would love to continue creating events and opportunities for the playwriting department to network and share work with each other. Especially events that mix older and younger students together. Through these festivals I’ve had the chance to meet upperclassmen who have inspired me and helped me learn so much about my own work and the Marymount Playwriting community.
I would also like to throw my hat in the ring for the Theatre New Media sophomore representative. I believe that our concentration needs more extra curricular opportunities similar to the ones I’ve been able to participate in through the playwriting department.
