A senior project in Theater Studies for Elizabeth Emanuel & Jill Carrera

Whitney Theater, Yale University

April 21-28, 2017

Taught by professors Nathan Roberts and Deb Margolin, this production seminar at Yale University was a senior project for myself in stage management and another student in creative producing. Inspired by groups such as Elevator Repair Service and The Wooster Group, as well as plays like 10 out of 12 and Noises Off, the six students in the class created, designed, and performed every part of the production. Involving live projections, audience interaction, and onstage sound mixing, this production brought the technical elements of theater to the forefront.
