Tyler Potvin, English, Theater Arts

“I was fortunate to experience first-hand some of the hard work and different efforts that go into moving an idea of a co-op into something tangible.”

“My experience as an intern for the Theater Arts program this year has been an amazing experience. As a technical theater intern, I have worked closely with the theater arts faculty attending meetings about the upcoming season of shows, and production meetings for the shows that were in production. I worked extensively with Prof. Shelley Barish in the scene shop, building sets for shows, painting, and learning to use more complicated tools in order to make more intricate scenery. I have learned a lot about the business aspect of putting on a production through meetings with other interns. A fantastic experience for all those who wish to be involved in Theater professionally.”
