Recent alumna Jillian Yong (B.A., theatre and dance, ‘21) has been hired as the theatre manager for Carlmont High School.
“As theatre manager, I oversee and run all events that occur in the building, from presentations to performances to daily maintenance,” said Yong. “I work with the rest of the performing arts department to produce and maintain a master calendar of events for the school year, and I work with community groups to rent out the theatre when we have availability.”
“I also work with students interested in technical theatre, teaching them how to safely and professionally work in a theatre during these events.”
While at UC Davis, Yong served as a company manager and worked on numerous productions behind-the-scenes including stage manager for CIRCUS, an MFA project, assistant stage manager on The Bluest Eye and Peter and the Starcatcher, co-lighting designer on The Bachelorette, and light board operator on Pippin In Concert and Outside the Lines #2 2018.
