25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

This was my first summer stock job at Pendragon Theatre in Saranac Lake, New York. I loved working here. I started the summer here as a general tech intern and finished as the Technical Director. 

For Spelling Bee, I did all of the scenic painting transforming the blank space into a wooden gymnasium. It was a pretty steep learning curve and since the performance space doubled as the rehearsal space I had pretty limited time to work. It was a great experience to see how much I could get done every day after the rehearsals ended and especially with such a complex multi-step paint treatment.


During the run of the show, I ran the microphones for all nine actors. I also set up the entire wireless mic system in the theatre. It was brand new to the building and was the first time this theatre had used them.
