Brooke is thrilled to be part of her first production with Actor's Express, as well as a show that blends puppetry and theatre so beautifully. Previously in Atlanta, Brooke has stage managed for the Center for Puppetry Arts as the Downstairs Theatre Stage Manager for the 2004-2005 season, where she was SM for Rumpelstiltskin, Spooky Puppet: The Beginning, and Pinnochio with Lee Bryan. Out of town, she was the Education Stage Manager for Virginia Stage Company in Norfolk for the 2003-2004 season, where she was SM for Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, The Story of Jumping Mouse, and Cat's-Paw. Brooke received her BA from Brenau University and the Gainesville Theatre Alliance. Now persuing her passion for theatre education, she is currently the Theatre for Youth Asst at the Alliance Theatre, as well as a director for the GA Shakespeare residency program for grades 3-12. Many thanks to Rachel, Jon, Joe, and Jasson for a wonderful visit back into stage management!
