Meet Chiara, The Milford Theater and Performing Arts Center resident stage manager/theatre manager! Chiara has enjoyed the fine art of theater and performing since she can remember. “I have been singing, dancing, and acting for as long as I can remember, but I officially started my journey in the theatre world in the 7th grade when I joined the theatre group at school.” Chiara went on to study theatre all throughout middle school, high school and college, and graduated with a BA in Theatrical Performance & Direction. After her college experience, Chiara continued to perform in local community theaters until the opportunity of Resident Stage Manager at The Milford Theater presented itself in 2021.
When asked her favorite part of working in Milford, Chiara says, “What I love most about working here is the closeness of the town. Not only in the ability of being able to walk from business to business, but also between the people and the atmosphere the town creates. It is its own little “oasis”,” While Chiara admits the job can be a long and demanding process, she says there is something so special and rewarding about being a part of something bigger than yourself that you helped create. “My favorite part of the theater in general is the amount of possibilities that lie behind those house doors. Not only is there so much to learn in all of the ever-growing and ever-changing technical aspects, but you very literally can be anything you want to be as soon as you step foot on that stage. The Arts are so important in our lives and in our communities, and getting to be a part of making that happen every day is something I have always dreamed of.”
We appreciate all of your help and expertise in bringing life back to The Milford Theater, Chiara! Keep up the good work!
