Rachel Beeson is a fabulous freshman stage managing FTC’s upcoming production of “Cabaret”!

Rachel Beeson

FTC: What is the stage manager of a Tac-e show responsible for?
RB: I am responsible for everyone’s sanity but my own.

FTC: What’s your favorite part about being the stage manager?
RB: I get to watch (and assist!) the creative process at work in all its generative glory, giving life to someone’s vision. It’s profoundly moving to watch the pieces come together.

FTC: What is one of the top items on your bucket list?
RB: To go! Somewhere! Anywhere! At least not in the USA. Sweden is a top choice but my wanderlust doesn’t distinguish novel experiences.

FTC: How many FTC shows have you worked on?
RB: This is my second, and I am desperately hiding my inexperience.

FTC: What is your spirit food?
RB: This is tough. I love food. I bake so much that I might as well turn into a cupcake or a loaf of bread. But my go-to response is trail mix; sweet, salty, and nutty.

FTC: What is your favorite rehearsal quote so far?
RB: A la Macklemore; “vhat vhat, vhat, vhat.”

Come see Rachel and the rest of Front Row put on “Cabaret” this February 20th, 21st, and 22nd!
