INTERN TAKE OVER DAY 1

Not in the loop about the takeover? Get looped in here.

The down and dirty explanation: October 14th at 7:00pm Mike Daisey is coming to Woolly to do a benefit for the Interns. Drunk with power, the interns have taken over the Woolly blog. Every day this week come here to learn about a new pair of hardworkin’ young Mammoths.

Kasey Hendrix: Properties Intern

“do you have your tickets!? Do you!?” Kasey asks.
“…For what?” you respond innocently.
“TO THE GUN SHOW!” yells Kasey.

Where are you from?

Palmyra, PA

Why Woolly? 

I admire that this company actively takes risks and gives opportunities for new work to be shown. You never know what’s going to happen next and I love that kind of atmosphere.

What’s next for you?

That’s really up in the air at the moment. I just know that I want to be an artist, whatever that might mean. I could see myself happy doing props, acting, or traditional art. Outside of my career, some life goals of mine are to finish writing/drawing a comic, possibly swim with sharks but there’s a good chance I’d chicken out of that one, do a complete Lord of the Rings/Hobbit marathon after all those movies come out, and hike at least a portion of The Appalachian Trail.

Fun Fact!?

I have a horrible time coming up with good fun facts, but I swear I’m an interesting person. Legit.

David Phelps: Technical Assistant

David copies Kasey. Though his unwavering confidence in his “guns” is less kinetic.

Where are you from?

 Greenbelt, MD.

Why Woolly? 

I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in May and came to Woolly to continue learning about technical theatre, especially scenic construction.

What’s next for you?

After this program I hopes to move on to other professional theatres and eventually return to school to earn my MFA.

Fun Fact!?

All of my facts are fun.

The First Performance of American Utopias: An Intern Benefit will be October 14th at 7:00pm for one night only at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company. For tickets click here, email Tickets@Woollymammoth.net or call the box office at 202-393-3939. All the proceeds from the evening will go to support Woolly Mammoth’s Internship Program, which helps early career artists make the transition from school to the professional theatre.#InternUtopia
