    TECHNICALPORTFOLIO

  • Theatre is my Romeo to Juliet, my pen to a writer, the world is my stage. I have always

    had a passion for the arts. I discovered theatre during the end of seventh grade. It was not until

    high school though that my love of theatre became a real passion. Theatre quickly became a part

    of me and what I wish to pursue as a career.

    I have grown up in a family who has a great appreciation for the arts whether it is theatre,

    music, photography, or movies. My cousin is an opera singer, my grandmother was an art

    teacher and adores going to the theatre as well as taking me to see shows, and my parents both

    studied technical theatre when they were younger. Participating in theatre in middle school was a

    great kick starter to my high school theatre experience. It gave me a good hobby to do after

    school and I made new friends.

    I started cultivating my love for theatre into a passion for theatre when I got to high

    school. It quickly became an extension of me. I switched between each section of technical

    production before finding my specialty. I found that sound production was something that

    sparked an interest in me. It was something that kept drawing my attention like a moth to a flame

    and I quickly came to learn what the upper classmen had to teach. I learned how to run a sound

    board, put mics on people, and learned to fix problems where ever I could. When they left I

    quickly took over the sound department and did whatever I could to learn more about sound

    design and production. I got a job at my school as a Student Technician where I had to learn

    lighting as well, which quickly became something that I loved. I got to learn how to light the

    stage whether it is in specific areas or the whole stage, as well as some basic programing of the

    lighting board.

    Theatre is something I want to do as a career because it would be something that I love to

    do, and every day would be exciting and challenging. I strive to learn whatever I can in any part

    of the production such as Set, Costume, Make-Up, but my biggest focus is Sound and Lighting. I

    would like to get a degree in Sound Design and get a career mixing sound. I love the way when I

    am listening to a show or musical the voices and music just surround me and envelop me, pulling

    me into the world of the show.

  • Sound Design Statement

    The Director wanted to keep this performance of Annie in its original form, as a comic

    strip showcasing the circumstances of the economic and social life in America during the 1920s

    and 1930s. Annie is about a little girl who had an abundance of hope and spirit and through her

    many endeavors, she brings her unwavering hope and sunny disposition not only to the

    characters around her, but the audience as well. I was the Sound Director for this show. The

    Director wanted everyone with a line to have a mic. The biggest trial was getting everyone a mic

    with the small resources we had. At the time we had 42 people with lines throughout the show

    and only 14 mics to work with. I borrowed 11 mics from a local middle school. That gave me 25

    mics for 42 people. I went through the script and through every character's lines, when they

    entered, and when they exited, finding convenient times to switch mics between characters and

    this got everyone who had a line a mic. I bought 2 ribbon mics and made them look time period

    appropriate for the radio scene. By making the mics look of the period and having every person

    get a mic we were able to make the directors vision become a reality.
