You may not recognize Mari, even if you’ve come to the last few performances, and that’s because Mari was the first Positively Arts student to join our “Backstage Crew” last year for our Holiday Festival at Water St. Plaza Amphitheatre. Interested in how production shows work from the other side of the camera, Mari donated her time to help stage manage our Holiday show last year. She got to meet the backstage techs and crew of the Amphitheatre and shadow them during the show. Not only did she help keep our kiddos running in order, but she also helped them calm down when their nerves got the best of them! When it was time to put together our first original musical, Mari was one of the first to donate her time AGAIN to help us with the production side. Joining her fellow student Stage Manager, Chloe Perez, Mari and Chloe are ensuring that our musical goes off without a hitch! We are so thankful for students like Mari who go above and beyond to help their community while pushing themselves to be forever learners, grateful for every opportunity presented to them. If you see Mari at Super Summer when you come to see our shows on March 12th or 13th, make sure to tell her what a great job she’s doing!
Thank you, Mari!!!
