Nicovich is a senior this year. He is the head techie in charge
of set and lighting design. He lives in the theatre. If you don't
believe him, ask his family. They've threatened to rent out his
room and the dog doesn't recognize him anymore.
Cassie Bird is
also a senior and is looking forward to the shows this season.
After graduation,Cassie is planning to major in theatre in college.
She spends so many hours in the theatre sometimes she is not even
seen, even if she is standing center stage. GO BOB VILA
- AND TIME IN AFRICA!
Helms is a senior this year. He is the stage manager for the
majority of the plays and hopes to continue working in the theatre
when he enters college. Although he acts a little, he doesn't
like it. He is also the proud owner of "Papa DeWalt"
is looking forward to her fourth year of involvement with Parkview
Performing Arts. She has "teched" several plays, beginning with
Brigadoon, her freshman year and most recently, Into the Woods
last year. She plans to continue participating in theater in college.
DeHart - Hates
writing bios. He never knows what to say. Writing in 3rd person
also bothers him. He helps with the sets and is one of the few people
in the theatre who knows how to run the lightboard. Sean has been
in theatre since last year when he was recruited by Mrs. Morrow
off her daughter's team.
Wow, A bio. I actually started my Parkview career as a musical
ensemble member but, I decided that I preferred the whine of a
saw to the whine of tired actors. There's nothing quite like the
sound of a drill at midnight the morning of opening night. Although
it's not very feminine, being a techie is a lot more fun. I have
been somehow involved with every show since the end of my freshman
year. It's been fun and I hope to be involved in "black theatre"
when I go to college.
Thomas - For ages, we two groups have been charged in a holy
war. A holy war that has no apparent end. No end in sight and none
to be seen. But we few, a hybrid of these two races. We few who
fight both wars on both sides. The war is between techies and actors.
I am Zach Thomas and I am a hybrid. Sorry, that was just too dramatic.
This is my senior year and I am enjoying it. I plan to practice
my ways further in college. An amalgam of the actors and the techies.
Dewey - A
web site for techies! Oh no, now they'll know who we are, aaaa!
Wow four years, so many memories. Thanks to all the seniors I've
ever met. It was always seniors who got me involved in the many
different wonders of theatre. First acting and now techieing.
Truthfully, I will and won't miss it. But, I'll miss everyone,
well almost. Thanks for the smiles.
Gaskill - James
is a senior and he has enjoyed all the tech work he has done with
Parkview Theatre. He was the stage manager for "Romeo and
Juliet." That was when the theatre took his soul. He has
always enjoyed building and enjoys the opportunity to make a set
and see a show come together when the curtain opens. He also does
find the late night rush before a show fun, in a strange - deprived
way. He has been an "actor" in two full-length shows;
he is currently seeking help for this disease. James plans to tech
with the University of Georgia Theatre after graduation.
Weldon - Melanie has been involved all four years in the drama
program at Parkview and has enjoyed the time she has spent in
the theater. She was in the ensemble for Brigadoon her freshman
year, but after that, she has been a techie. Melanie will either
be a student at Furman University or in the Honors College at
the University of Georgia next year, where she will pursue a major
in either Pharmacy or Linguistics (choices, choices). She hopes
to continue quenching her thirst for drama as a college student.
"Elf Boy" Connor-
Sean (or "Elf Boy"
as he is more commonly referred to) is the youngest of the Parkview
techies. He has done some small stuff during the last year, but
his biggest accomplishment was the limousine from "Crazy for
You" which won the "Best Set Piece" award at the Sub-Region
One-Act Play Competition. He would like to thank all of the current
seniors for giving him the opportunity to get involved in the theater
program and for all of the wisdom and advice that they have given
him. He would also really like to thank Mr. Townley for all of the
work that he does around the theater and for taking the time to
teach younger techies.
Hi! This is my
second year of teching at Parkview. Guess you could say I caught
the "techie bug" that's passed on through siblings. I
caught it from my brother. Or maybe I caught the smell of paint
fumes instead . . . Paint? What? Sorry! Hope you guys had fun at
the shows this year. Come back and see us next year, it should be
