Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm Becky! I'm a rising sophomore from Montville, NJ (a suburb of NYC) who is at MIT studying mathematics with computer science. In addition to my academics, I spend a lot of time participating in theatre with the MIT Musical Theatre Guild and Shakespeare Ensembles; I was the Assistant Stage Manager for MTG's "Kiss Me, Kate" and "The Mystery of Edwin Drood", Stage Manager for MTG's "bare", and Assistant Lighting Designer for Shakespeare Ensemble's "Pericles." I also have experience with sound engineering from my high school days. I am looking forward to teaching a class on How To Stage Manage this summer with HSSP.

X2409: Stage Managing - An Introduction to Controlling Theatrical Magic in HSSP Summer 2009 (Jul. 12, 2009)
This course is intended for nascent stage managers and anyone else with a theatrical bent. We aim to give a good overview of all aspects of technical theater, as a stage manager's job is to understand and be able to work with all aspects of a production. Each session or two will focus on a different aspect of technical theater, including set construction and design, lighting, props, costumes and makeup, among others.
