My interest and passion for theater began in high school when I took part in constructing scenery for our school’s production of Robin Hood. I immediately fell in love with the idea of creating a world inhabited by characters performing for a live audience, the challenge and outside of the box thinking necessary for designing for the stage has continued to fascinate and inspire me. In addition to art form itself, theater also has a wealth of history and tradition, beginning with the first cave man telling stories around a camp fire, to the Greek amphitheaters, to the Globe Theatre of Shakespeare and the list goes on and on.
The study of theater is as study of the human experience in the most fundamental and honest way, through the plays of the ancient Greeks, the Elizabethan masters, and even the dramas of the Checkov we get a unique glimpse of society. Through those voices we learn of fashion, architecture, politics, and especially language and social norms. As an avid history buff I am always excited at getting to delve deeper into periods of history that otherwise get bypassed and faded in the memory and introduce them to new audiences.
