"Hey Emily! What are you working on right now?"
When the COVID-19 lockdown began, I moved from Philadelphia back home to the Tallahassee area and I'm using this time to organize my home workshop, learn new skills, and help my family with some home renovation projects. I'm excited to see theaters opening back up and can't wait to get back to making props!
My time spent working in the props department at the Walnut Street Theatre was wonderful and I'm very bummed it got cut short due to the virus. Check out some of my favorite pieces I made there 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.
