We are two months away from our performance season and just finished up our intern process! We had many wonderful applications and chose four stellar candidates that we are excited to see work with YATC in the future! Please meet Connor, Marlene, and Louise. Our fourth intern Nate is out of town at the moment but don't you worry, you will meet that handsome blond haired fella soon enough. So without further ado, the 2016 interns!
Connor: Hi there! My name is Connor McKenna and I'm super excited to be joining the YATC team this summer as an intern! I'm sixteen years old, and finishing up my sophomore year at Newport High School. I've been doing theatre for almost eight years now, and I've been in over thirty productions throughout my career. I'm really excited to work with YATC this summer, since it'll be my first experience working with a professional theatre company in Seattle. I know I'm gonna learn a lot and have a great time!I'm really looking forward to being part of the greater whole of the production, not just onstage. I've always wanted to learn the more technical and business-like side of the theatre world, and I'm sure this is where I'll learn it.
Marlene: Hello all! My name’s Marlene and I will be one of YATC’s interns this summer! I’m 16 years old and about to wrap up my sophomore year at Ingraham. I began to get involved more with theatre last year at Ingraham and even more so this past school year. I guess I haven’t really been around all that long, but I am so excited to gain more experience this summer and learn more about all the aspects of theatre that I have yet to explore. I’m absolutely thrilled to have been granted this amazing opportunity to intern at YATC and am looking forward to working on some fantastic shows this summer with some wonderful people!
Louise: Hello! My name is Louise Heller, I’m 16 years old, and next year I’ll be a Junior at Ingraham High School. I couldn’t be more excited to intern with YATC this summer! I am involved with the wonderful Ingraham Drama department since the beginning of high school and am looking forward to expanding my theatre experience even more. I’m thrilled to get this chance to be more involved in the Seattle youth theatre scene and to meet so many new people. I’m looking forwards to not only expanding my knowledge on how theatre companies are run, and gaining experience in theatre management, but also spending some time with a group of lovely people.
Hope you enjoyed this brief introduction to some wonderful people. May Bowie Be with You. The Young Americans Theatre Company.
