Meet Our 2018 College Interns!

Meet our new college intern, Megan Townsend.

What school are you currently attending?
“I attend Marymount Manhattan College and I am working towards a BA in Theatre Arts, with a double major in Theatre History and Performance Texts & Theatre and New Media.”

Why did you choose to apply for the Parkway Playhouse college internship?
“I have always admired the high quality of the shows, and how everyone seems to be having so much fun. Parkway Playhouse always puts on a great show, and I am very excited to become part of this team.”

What is your favorite show/musical of all time?
“My favorite musical is Finding Neverland. It was the first Broadway show I ever saw, and it was absolutely stunning. The music, the book, the dancing, everything was perfect. It’s what inspired me to move to New York, because it made me realize I need to be as close to Broadway as possible.”

What Parkway Playhouse show are you most excited to work in/see this season?
“I am very excited for Oliver! I love this show and the music, and I am very excited to see it come to life. It has a wide range of ages, and I love watching so many different people work together to make something amazing.”

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
