Renee is thrilled to be returning for her second season with Gulfshore Playhouse. Originally from the Chicago land area, she began exploring the world after high school while serving a four-year tour in the United States Air Forces as a Korean Cryptologic Linguist. After the USAF she went on to earn a Master of Arts in Fashion Design from Illinois State University, where she also spent a few semesters as an adjunct professor. Renee stumbled into theater after receiving an opportunity to spend a season with Illinois Shakespeare Festival in 2013 and hasn’t looked back since. Favorite design credits include Once and See How They Run with Saint Michael’s Playhouse. Crowns, Mary Poppins, and Jesus Christ Superstar with Starlight Theatre. Renee is excited to design Holmes and Watson this season with Gulfshore Playhouse.
