Victoria McWilliams – General Technician Intern- Lighting

I am from Kansas City, KS, I have two older brothers, a cat named Frisky and a dog named Sonic. I recently graduated from Missouri State University in Springfield, MO with a BFA in Design/Tech/Stage Management with an emphasis in Lighting/Electrics.

My last job before coming here was a stagehand position with Southwest Audio Visual, the last two summers I spent with Tent Theatre (at MoState), first as an assistant scenic artist and most recently as the Master Electrician, in 2015 I worked as a lighting intern for the Seattle Children’s Theatre for the summer.

What brought me to the playhouse was that I was seeking not only a job, but a little bit more of a learning experience before completely stepping out into the world. The playhouse was perfect for that because not only do I spend most of my time doing the work, there’s also time specifically set aside for me to ask questions and just learn anything and everything I want to and it’s pretty great.
