All Spotlights » Katrina Niemisto
Katrina is currently starting her second season with The Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities, a LORT B equity theatre. She works in the costume shop as a costume crafts artisan and in wardrobe running shows. (Soon, hopefully she'll be able to announce that she is the head of the wardrobe department!) She spent a season interning with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in stage management and from that experience she was able to assistant stage manage for the National Theatre Conservatory, the soon to be closing MFA program that the Denver Center runs. Katrina has also stage managed for The Aurora Fox Arts Center "Little Foxes" children's theatre as well as property designed for them for their main stage season, stage managed for Curious Theatre Company for a production of *Circle Mirror Transformation* and their young playwright's program "Curious New Voices." Additionally, she had a contract with Aspen Theatre Masters as a replacement stage manager, driving 5 hours through a blizzard to "save the day" as the artistic director puts it. She was offered her equity contract twice and decided to turn it down until there is more steady year around work as a stage manager. Katrina shaved her head back in March for St. Baldrick's, a Children's Cancer research society raising $3000 towards the fight against childhood cancers. Hooray!
