All-time favorite ASC moment:
Spending a 16-hour day filming a timelapse of events in the Blackfriars Playhouse. From the quiet moments as the lights come on and the first people trickle in for morning’s rehearsal to campers bounding across the stage, to audiences filling the space with laughter during an evening performance and a surprise marriage proposal on stage — it was just amazing to quietly sit and observe the daily life of the playhouse.
Lauren joined the ASC as the company’s first in-house graphic designer in 2011 and quickly fell in love with the magic of the place. After running away to Richmond for a few years to marry, grow a new human, and run a photography studio, she has happily made her way back over the mountain where she handles the visual branding and daily design and photo needs of the theater. Originally from the Asheville, NC, area and a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, when not juggling the visual needs of the theater Lauren manages the madness of a 3-hour daily commute with a steady dose of audiobooks, color-coded binders, baby snuggles, and weekend excursions typical of middle school field trips.
