Alumna Shines at GLOW Lyric Theatre
Tigerville SC (July 25, 2016) Samantha Cook, a 2016 NGU alumna, has had a busy summer with GLOW Lyric Theatre in Greenville, S.C.
Cook was hired as GLOW’s Properties Designer for their 2016 summer festival season. GLOW is South Carolina’s only professional opera, operetta and musical theatre company, and is known for their productions each July which focus on social justice issues. The aim this summer is to spark conversation on the challenges immigrants and refugees face in South Carolina.
Opening the season is Gounod’s deeply romantic opera, Romeo et Juliette, followed immediately by the fiery musical West Side Story. Both shows will be presented at Furman’s McAlister Auditorium, and will run for one weekend only from July 27-31. The season also features a special one night only performance, Summer Stars Cabaret, which will be held on July 28 at Furman’s Playhouse Theatre.
As Properties Designer, Cook designed, created and built any objects that the actors use or handle onstage. For GLOW’s season, this includes items like food, 1950s magazines, and a variety of period weapons.
Cook recently graduated from North Greenville University in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in theatre/technology. While there, she was the properties master/designer for Steel Magnolias, and assistant properties master for Into the Woods.
“Samantha obviously received a great arts education at NGU,” says Jenna Tamisiea, GLOW’s Artistic Director. “We’re so excited to offer her this professional opportunity!”
