WOW Recipient Spotlights


"I will be working at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. Each summer, the O'Neill hosts five different conferences that focus on the development of new theatrical works. I will be working as the assistant to the artistic directors for the National Puppetry Conference, National Music Theater Conference, and Cabaret and Performance Conference. I will be able to assist with rehearsals, production meetings, staged readings, cabaret performances, and more. Because of the World of Work Scholarship, I am able to afford to stay at the O'Neill for ten weeks and immerse myself in three very different types of theatrical environments. This internship will provide hands-on experience and countless networking opportunities, both of which are essential to start a career in theater. I am so excited to be representing Brandeis and am very thankful to be funded by Hiatt and the World of Work!."
