About the Mentorship Program
This production of The Glass Menagerie is presented by Paraphrase Productions’ Mentorship Program. This program allows young artist to grow in their desired craft by gaining useful knowledge, tools, and guidance from Paraphrase’s executive production and creative team members. Beginning in June applicants will meet with their Mentor weekly discussing their art and gaining hands on experience working in a professional theater company setting. Two months of training prepares the applicants to pull together a full production themselves- from conception to curtain.

I am overjoyed to see how this show has turned out and absolutely humbled to have worked with such an amazing cast and crew. I would like to thank Paraphrase Productions (Specifically my mentors Paul Davis, Andrew Marderian, and Victoria Sanchez) for giving me this wonderful opportunity and guiding me through the process of making my artistic vision of The Glass Menagerie a reality. This mentorship has meant the world to me. I figured I wouldn't have a chance to direct anything without previous training or experience outside of high school, and had no idea where I could start to accumulate that experience. Additional thanks goes to my Stage Manager Maya Aizenman who learned alongside me, my producer Justin Gaudoin, my poster artist Anthony Tringali, the owners and facilitators of Paper Wing Theater for hosting us and lastly everyone who helped construct and decorate my set. I hope you enjoy the show.
