I am a senior majoring in Drama: Performance and Informatics (Human-Computer Interaction). I participated in multiple UTS productions such as "Head Trip: An Improvised Drama." I also love doing improv.  My other hobbies include playing video games (League of Legends, Overwatch), watching TV shows (The Office, Parks & Rec) and anime (Hunter x Hunter), and finding other hobbies.

Daisy Schreiber

She/Her
Production Manager
production@uwuts.org
Hi! I'm a freshman hoping to double major in Drama and Sociology. I'm super new to UW and UW-theater, but I can't wait to get started and immerse myself in all things UTS. Throughout high school I did lots of Seattle-area theater from both the artistic and production side, and my favorite theater adjacent hobby is laughing very loudly at the funny parts of shows. Other than that, I pet a lot of cats, sing in the car, and write things that may or may not be fanfiction.

Em Smith

Production Manager

I'm a senior undergraduate majoring in Drama! Em is the current Production Manager of UTS and a Stage Manager within the School of Drama. Recently, I've completed internships in production management with Synetic Theatre in Crystal City, VA and Village Theatre KIDSTAGE in Everett, WA. I hope one day to become the Production Manager of a professional theatre company! In my free time, I enjoy horror movies, astronomy, stand-up comedy, coffee, and D&D!

Technical Director

I'm Michael and I am an undergraduate senior studying Mechanical Engineering. I'm also the technical director for UTS. I'm basically in charge of Cabaret theater maintenance, keeping track of all of UTS’s technical property, purchasing supplies, and making sure UTS’s inventories are up to date. I also work with designers to help them bring their ideas to life, attends tech rehearsals and strikes, and instructs people on how to use UTS equipment.

Michelle Lin

She/Her, They/Them
Finance Director
finance@uwuts.org
I am a junior majoring in Computer Science, although this is my final year at UW. I acted in UTS's Fall 2019 production of Anon(ymous) and loved it, and decided to get more involved by taking on the position of Finance Director. Outside of school and theatre, I love playing and writing music, rollerblading and playing video games! Fun fact: I hate cilantro and most purple leafy vegetables.

Deborah Kwon

She/Her
Publicity Director
publicity@uwuts.org
I’m Deb, the UTS Publicity Director, still trying to figure life out. I'm also majoring in business. Being the UTS Publicity Director basically means helping UTS get clout — for a good reason: the wild magic of theater. Fact: I believe we are ALL main characters in our own stories. Sad fact: I hate politics but very much do politics (make it make sense). Fact: talk to me about culture hot takes, comedies, and/or Twitter & we’ll automatically click. Costar is infinitely more helpful than LinkedIn.

Dhara Shah

She/Her
Creative Development Director
creative@uwuts.org
Hello, I'm Dhara and I'm majoring in Drama. I'm the creative development director for UTS. As the creative development director, I oversee our New Works process throughout the year; helping directors and playwrights produce a play. I also help create opportunities through which those students can explore their learning impulses outside of the mainstage shows such as workshops and other groups.

Christie Zhao

She/Her, They/Them
Social Chair (Director of Fun)
social@uwuts.org
Hello friends! I am a senior studying Computer Science and Drama Performances. I love directing, singing, acting, and light designing. I founded the Chinese Theater Club at UW in my sophomore year and joined UTS as a social chair last year. During quarantine, I still kept filling up my life with Zoom theater and practices and I hope to bring this love of theater to more people. If you want to ask any questions about double majors, learning theater as an international student, or just chat about life sometimes, feel free to send me an email!

Lawson Richards

He/Him
Graphics Designer
graphic@uwuts.org
I'm Lawson and I'm a freshman undergrad planning to go into Architecture. I love acting and working as crew, and I'll never pass by an opportunity to join a show. Aside from theater, I love model building, singing, playing piano, and of course video games. I'm also a huge nerd and love to mess around in DND.

Rosemary Lisa Jones

She/Her
Graphics Designer
graphic@uwuts.org
I'm a second year Drama and CHID double major. I'm mainly focused in stage management - I've SM'd 3 shows for UTS so far - but I dabble around in the other departments as well. Graphic design is my passion - I have a lot of fun because I feel like every time I make something in Photoshop I'm reinventing the wheel. On the side, I'm an audio/video editing hobbyist, and Dungeons and Dragons DM, and a bonafide gamer AND skater girl.

Kalea Levy

She/Her
Social Media Coordinator
socialmedia@uwuts.org
I’m a sophomore double majoring in Drama and Education, Communities, and Organizations. I grew up on Bainbridge Island, Washington but I then moved to Austin, Texas where I worked closely with many artists and fell in love with how theatre can produce works of art that bring communities together and I hope to one day become a director of education for a local theatre. I’m excited to use the social media channels to share and promote the amazing events and productions UTS creates. Besides theatre, I love to talk about dogs, Tik Tok, crafts, dinosaurs, and anything to do with the outdoors.
