 “I came into the Los Angeles Theater Center by chance, looking for a way to get my foot in the door in a theater in the Los Angeles area, and was lucky enough to land a spot in the Play At Work Fall 2017 session. As a then aspiring theater professional, it was the launch pad I needed to get a more comprehensive understanding of every facet of professional theater - not just the areas I was already personally invested in. I have since been able to work in a handful of departments at the LATC, focusing mostly on Front of House, but also helping in the accounting and administration offices. Play At Work is the perfect starting place for any young person who wants to get a better idea of what an off-stage theater career can look like.”
