Santa Cruz Shakespeare
This summer I had the incredible privilege of serving as the assistant dramaturg on Santa Cruz Shakespeare's production of Love's Labour's Lost! It was so fun to be a part of such a lively, smart, hilarious, and diverse company of artists and I miss them every day. If you are in the Santa Cruz area, click below to buy tickets! Look forward to a blog post soon reflecting on the whole experience.
I am so proud to have served as co-chair alongside Gus Henry for Carnegie Mellon's Greek Sing, and am still in shock that we raised a record breaking $100,522.53 for Camp Kesem!
Greek Sing is an annual philanthropy event in which the Carnegie Mellon Greek life community comes together to create and perform a variety of 13-minute musicals with the purpose of raising money for a student-chosen charity. This year, our partnered charity is the Carnegie Mellon chapter of Camp Kesem. Camp Kesem is a nationwide community driven by passionate college student leaders, and that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer by providing recreational summer camps free of charge.
I am currently in the rehearsal process for my first play in New York City- Millicent Scowlworthy by Rob Handel. The team of artists involved includes many of my friends and collaborators from Carnegie Mellon and Williamstown as well as new faces! For more information or to donate please visit the link below!
