Chair: Marty Whitney ’13
Marty is a senior Philosophy major and Italian minor from Kauai,
Hawaii. She has been involved in Project: Theatre since her first
semester at Mount Holyoke, and is honored to be serving as Chair! PT productions she’s been a part of include “The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail”, “Twelfth Night”, “Play Dead”, and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. When Marty’s not in class or at rehearsal for a PT show, she enjoys working as a member of the Student Programs Stage Crew, making jewelry, and having philosophical discussions.
Sam is an English and theatre double major from Massachusetts, and she is proud to be serving her second year as secretary of the board! Her passionate love affair with Project: Theatre began her very first semester at Mount Holyoke and has since blossomed into a torrid romance in which she sends out emotionally-charged e-mails to the membership on an unusually frequent basis. (It’s all that theatre love, it can’t be stopped!) When she’s not busy talking loudly with her hands, making frighteningly ugly faces, or devouring copious amounts of poetry, she can be found eating embarrassingly large amounts of gummy bears. She also has an unhealthy obsession with cat videos, Law and Order: SVU, and Shania Twain.
Erin is a senior who has been involved in Project: Theatre since fall of her sophomore year. Originally from Wisconsin, she is an international relations and French double-major who really loves tea, skirts, high heels, and feminism. Her favorite place on campus used to be the Cutter Collection, before it was closed to students. Her Patronus is an otter or possibly a jellyfish.
Sammio is a junior Forensic Biology special major and Theatre Arts minor from Wynantskill, NY. She has been involved in Project: Theatre since the spring of her first year. She has participated in 7 PT shows as an actor, assistant director, director, and is now a board member. In her time not devoted to theatre, she is an administrative student worker, a tour guide for the Office of Admission and a member of MHC’s Pre-Medical Association.
Maxana is a junior Neuroscience and Behavior major from Croton-on-Hudson, NY. She has been working with Project: Theatre since her first semester and has since been a stage manager, assistant stage manager and producer on six PT shows. Outside of theater she enjoys traveling, dancing, soccer, and cuddling up with a good book while drinking tea.
Caitlin O’Connor has been an active member of PT for two years and a board member for one. Her main interests in theatre include temporarily blinding actors and making fashion accessories out of caution tape. In her spare time, Caitlin enjoys wearing hockey gear while falling down a lot, and doing any kind of science that isn’t organic chemistry. Caitlin’s spirit animals are a rockhopper penguin and a giant anteater.
Grace Hudkins ’13
Grace is a senior who is double majoring in Psychology & Education and Religion, and she is thrilled to be returning for her fourth year on the board and her second term as locations coordinator! An active member of Project: Theatre since her first semester, Grace is a frequent director, stage manger, and producer for PT, and has been involved in the production of 13 shows. She is looking forward to bringing another year of amazing theatre to Mount Holyoke.
Liz is a Film Studies major and English minor. Somehow, completely without meaning to, she fell into Project Theatre her first semester at Mount Holyoke and hasn’t been able to get out since. She is entirely too enthusiastic about many things, but mostly Project Theatre. Liz is thrilled this year to spread that enthusiasm as much as she can as PT’s Treasurer. Her life outside PT includes running on the varsity cross country team, editing video, reading things she does not have time to, and dancing like no one’s watching. She is currently in love with Renaldo and does not understand why others don’t feel the same.
Rachael Berman ’14
Rachael is a psychology major from be great state of MA. She has been with PT since her first year with the wonderful team of the Vagina Monologues. She has also been a senator with SGA since her first year and in her free time she enjoys dabbling in PT love!
