Elynmarie Kazle recently closed an all female production called School Girls; or, the African Mean Girls Play at Firestone Theatre in Akron, Ohio. But our biggest shout out to Elynmarie is ALL the work she has done with the Stage Managers' Association of the United States. The very first SMA event that Cindy went to was the Holiday Party in NYC last year where she knew 2 people. But within minutes of walking intot he room, Elynmarie came up and introduced herself, introduced her to others, talked to her about the association and they exchanged stories about opera Stage Management. That's just who she is, she makes everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. THANK YOU!! Happy Stage Managers Day! #stagemgr2019 #internationalstagemanagersday2019 #stagemanagerlife #StageMgrAssoc
