Lindsay was a long-time member of the WC Alumni Board, where she worked to establish the Alumni Alliance, a coalition of affinity groups defined by a unifying interest or purpose, whose mission is to collaborate, educate, and network among each group’s members, so that in turn, they can assist the College to advance the vision and priorities of its leadership.
After finishing her undergraduate studies at Washington College in Drama and English, Lindsay went on to do her graduate work in Theatrical Production Management at Carnegie Mellon University. She has worked at a number of regional theaters, including the the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, Amaryllis Theater Company, and Philadelphia Theater Company, where she was the Associate Production Manager for 6 years. During that time, she also co-founded The Cardboard Box Collaborative with fellow alumna Mindy A. Beers ’01, a Philadelphia-based theater company specializing in the development of new theatrical works. She has also parlayed her theatrical knowledge into freelance work in talent management and event planning and has traveled, both domestically and internationally, helping to plan and organize conferences and events.
She has most recently accepted a position as Associate Producer for the Ira Brind School of Theater Arts at the University of the Arts, where she works with both student and professional artists to shepherd 20+ plays and musicals per year through the production process.
Lindsay fulfilled her senior thesis obligation at WC by directing a production of Love’s Fire. Some of her favorite WC productions include Lebensraum (1996) and The Fantasticks (2000), which she produced along with Jillan Matundan ’01. Her thoughts on the WC Drama Experience: “The most important things Washington College Drama taught me are a strong work ethic, the importance of collaboration, and a sense of self-reliance. And that ‘sharks… they’ve… been around a long time… um…’.”
