Emma was thrilled to design the lighting and collaborate with the creative team for CSU East Bay’s spring musical; Little Shop of Horrors.
Her goal is to pursue a graduate degree and a career in Lighting Design. Some of the shows she recently designed for include Sense and Sensibility with ACT’s MFA Program, Quilterswith Hartnell College, Territories with the Arabian Shakespeare Festival, and The Little Mermaid with Pacific Repertory Theater. In addition, she is spending the summer as a Lighting Technician for the New York Stage and Film Festival.
Emma is honored and grateful to receive the Friends of the Arts Scholarship. She would like to thank her spectacular mentors at CSUEB and all those that make the program possible. This scholarship will greatly assist with Emma’s continued education at CSUEB. It will allow her to continue to invest more time into both the department and building her design portfolio.
