"Hey Emily! What are you working on right now?"
I'm happy to say that for the summer of 2021 I am working as a Props Artisan at The Glimmerglass Festival Opera in Cooperstown, New York!
Projects that I work on this summer will be displayed in the gallery below.
I grew up with theatre, mostly as an actor. In high school, I found a love for sewing and earned Superior and Critic's Choice ratings for my costume constructions at the Florida District and State Thespian Festivals. In college, I found my passion behind the scenes in props. I've always had an interest in creating and fixing things, but was especially inspired by the scenic/prop shops I volunteered in. In May 2019, I graduated from the BA Theatre program in Florida State University's School of Theatre. From June 2019 to March 2020 I did a full-time Props Artisan apprenticeship at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, PA. Now, I am working at Glimmerglass Festival Opera for Summer 2021.
