Pre-Show

Alright everyone...here we go!

As most of you know (though some may not) I will be leaving in just over a week to begin a job Stage Managing on a cruise ship.

I will be on the Cruise ship "Constellation" with Celebrity Cruises.

I board the ship in Singapore on March 19th...after a very long plane ride. I hope to post on this blog weekly, if not more, to keep people up to date with my travels! I will post pictures and stories here and on Facebook.

Today I finally began packing! Laid out all my clothes and figured out what I need to bring and what I can live without for 6 months. So far, I have enough clothes, and lots of extra room!

Check back soon for more updates!

Kate

Having been given a Shakespearean name at birth, Kate has been immersed in theatre her entire life. Growing up learning Shakespeare, and participating in her first production at the age of 9, she has always loved the stage. Being able to tell a story, live, to so many people, sharing that experience with them has been a huge draw since day one.

At the age of 17 she was thrown into the deep end of Stage Managing, being called in during tech week to run a show, and loved it immediately. Making things run super smoothly for everyone involved, letting the actors focus on what they need to, and not what’s going on backstage is what she prides herself on.

Kate studied at SUNY Fredonia and received a B.A. in Theatre, after Stage Managing such shows as Electra and Don Juan in Chicago. She has Stage Managed musical productions including (Avenue Q, RENT Geneva Theatre Guild) and Operas Cosi Fan Tutte and Die Fledermaus (Geneva Light Opera).

A part of WallByrd since its conception, you've seen Kate's Stage Managing work inPool (No Water), The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), The Duchess of Malfi, and Romeo and Juliet.
