Theatrical Technician & Stage Manager

Alaina began working as a spotlight operator for the Willows Theatre Company to pay for acting summer camp, but soon discovered she preferred being backstage to being onstage. She 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. Alaina also spent three years as part of the backstage team at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, where she had the honor of working alongside many cultural and creative luminaries.
