Synthia is so excited to be involved in The Mockingbird's first show! They are from Plano, IL, a small town in the Chicagoland area. They just finished the Mississippi Bend Players 2020-2021 season as stage manager of Shelley Cooper’s Mary & Ethel: How I Learned to Sing and a company intern. Their favorite credits include stage managing The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, assistant stage managing Red, and performing as Paulette in Legally Blonde.
They’re a Junior at Augustana College, majoring in Theatre Arts and Political Science. While they’re a Theatre Arts generalist major, their concentrations are stage managing, lighting, and directing. They will be doing an independent study this spring advised by Jennifer Popple on queer theatre and its affects on politics.
They would like to start off by thanking their mentor Cameron Strandin for always believing in them and helping them become not only a well-rounded artist but well-rounded person. Next is their family and friends for unconditional love and support. And lastly, to the company of The Mountaintop for making this such a special and magical process.
