Willows Theatre Co.

Alaina began working as a spotlight operator in 2005 to pay for acting summer camp, but soon discovered she preferred being backstage to being onstage. She was offered a stage management internship with the Willows Theatre Co. and by 2007 had worked her way to the position of Deck Manager, responsible for overseeing all backstage operations. During this time Alaina also began working professionally as a non-union stage manager, overseeing the West Coast premier of the bloody and immersive cult hit, Evil Dead: the Musical, among others.
