Meet the Retreatant: Allie Herryman

21 Jun

Allie is a designer, production manager, and general Jill-of-All-Trades; we’re excited to have her on Retreat!

Alexandra came to Boston in the fall of 2009 to start her MFA at Boston University, and has gone on to a freelance career in production management and the occasional prop and puppet design. She has also built sets, hung lights, driven big trucks through cities, sewn on buttons, built risers, moved chairs and made lots of coffee.

Locally she has worked with Boston Opera Collaborative and Metro Stage Company, and she regularly appears at the Puppet Showplace Theatre as the technician for their quarterly Puppet Slam events.

Before Boston, Alexandra lived in Chicago, where she spent years as the full-time production manager for Silk Road Theatre Project.  She also worked around the city as a stage manager and prop designer for storefront companies Quest Ensemble, Tantalus Theatre, and Porchlight Music Theatre. When not busy behind the stage, she likes to drink coffee and be outside.
