BEHIND THE SCENES
Elizabeth Tippens is a freashman at Langley and is very excited to me in her second Saxon stage production. She loves being a stage manager and getting to make sure the show doesn’t burn to the ground. In her spare time she likes reading and murder. She would like to thank Alex Hanna for always being at rehearsal, Kate and Julia for the generations pizza donations and the amazing lighting crew ( Cole Sitilides and Peter Fox) thanks to everybody involvement ed and remember that death is Inevitable
SET DESIGN &
Teddy Spaner is both the set designer and part of the booth, I’ve learned a ton from this show. I’ve been able to expand my knowledge from construction to sound and it has been amazing! Thanks to all for making this a great experience!
Alyssa Medici is a sophomore, and this is her second show doing tech for Saxon Stage. Although there have been some struggles *coughbagpipescough*, this has been a wonderful experience, and she’s glad to have made so many new friends through tech. She’d like to thank the wonderful cast and crew, as well as her family and friends for putting up with her crazy “I can’t, I have tech” schedule.
Dani Espino is a senior at Langley and this will be her 10th and final production with Saxon Stage. As costume head for the past 3 years, she hopes to only stab a few people with safety pins, as a first time sound crew person, she REALLY hopes microphones stay put. After high school, Dani plans to pursue art as a photography major in art school. As a final goodbye to Langley and Saxon Stage, I say Lay All Your Love on this (Irish) Dancing Queen and the rest of the seniors as we embark on “Our Last Summer”.
While working in costumes is fun, sticking guys in wedding dresses makes my day. I may choose not to have style but I will make sure the actors do.
Christy Gao is so excited to be returning to tech crew for this spring’s iconic musical, Mama Mia. She spends most of her time altering between sewing and painting. She has grown to love her smock look and formed a deep friendship with Bridget and Alize through Saxon Stage. She can’t wait to come back next year and create more wonderful memories with all the wonderful people!
Jane Sullivan is a freshman at Langley. In her free time she enjoys playing soccer, and baking/cooking. She has had so much fun doing Mamma Mia and hopes to continue doing more shows in the future.
Mamma Mia! As a freshman, Mary Muir is new to Saxon Stage. Reading and playing volleyball are two of her hobbies outside of theatre. Knowing the amazing crew, she gladly partakes on this show.
Mama Mia will be Ellie’s fourth show with Saxon Stage. She’s the current lighting head, and she’s part of a hardworking and cohesive crew. Although there have been many struggles, everything might turn out fine, right?
Alizé Ashraf has had the pleasure of making so many new friends and memories with the crew of Mamma Mia. She was lucky enough to have her first time being a part of crew be an amazing experience and can’t wait to put the smocks on again next year with her favorite paint buddies Christy and Bridget. She hopes you enjoy the show and the hard work that went into making it.
Bridget Lee spent most of the show cleaning paint out of her hair and clothes, so she hopes you enjoy the set design. Although this is only her second show, she has already created an unbreakable bond with Christy, Alizé, and her smock. She ABBAsolutely cannot wait to come back next year.
Chloé Kennedy is a junior and this is her 2nd time doing back stage for a saxon stage production. She is sad to see the seniors graduate because they are all so talented, but she is so glad to have worked with such amazing and talented actors.
Gus Hamberg is thrilled to head hair/makeup for Mamma Mia! (How could he resist it?) This is his 4th mainstage show with Saxon Stage, he hopes you enjoy it!
