What are some highlights of your involvement in PMA?

My two favorite acting credits with PMA are playing #11 in The Wolves and Ophelia in Hamlet Wakes Up Late. I also wrote the play "Story Bored," which was produced in the 10-Minute Play Fest in 2018!

What are your favorite memories of PMA?

It's so hard to pick just a couple of my favorites! The Wolves was truly one of the best and most meaningful theatre experiences of my entire life, and the cast and crew of that show hold an extra special place in my heart. I also loved learning from and working with so many strong, intelligent, and creative women in the department as professors, directors, and as castmates and classmates! Finally, I think the moment when I learned that there was a classroom in the Eisner Pavilion changed my whole worldview. My life only exists pre- and post- that moment.

Thank-Yous

Thank you to Sara Warner for being my wonderful faculty advisor and mentor, Ellen Gainor for connecting me with the Kitchen Theatre Company, and Aoise Stratford for being the best playwriting professor/dramaturg I could ask for. I also want to thank anyone and everyone who has seen a show with the PMA department (especially student-directed and student-written work) for supporting new voices and student theatre!

Parting Words

Congratulations to all my fellow PMA graduates! I love you and miss you all so much, and I can't wait to see what you are all going to do in the future. Call me when you all make your Broadway debuts!!!
