Caitlin Bryson '12 | Company Manager

Caitlin Bryson, '12

Caitlin Bryson graduated magna cum laude from LMU class of 2012 with degrees in Theatre Arts and Psychology, as well as a minor in Spanish. In addition to her involvement in the department as a Theatre major, she was a very active member of the Del Rey Players, working as the Producing Director her junior year and the Artistic Director her senior year. She worked on a number of productions, both in the department and in Del Rey, in a wide variety of capacities. She also designed the props for six shows during her time at LMU, and directed The Little Dog Laughed her senior year.

After graduation, she worked for a year at the Palm Springs Follies, during which time she applied to graduate programs in arts administration. After being accepted to several schools across the country, she enrolled in CSU Long Beach's MBA/MFA Theatre Management program, which will allow her to earn two Masters degrees in three years.

In addition to a full-time class load, she currently works as the Director of Publicity for California Repertory Company. She also coordinates CSULB Theatre's educational Affinity series. This year, as part of the series, she organized a presentation on arts education in Bangladesh, a panel on racial stereotypes in Hollywood, and a LGBT Cabaret that raised more than $500 for The Trevor Project. She is also involved in the Education/Literary department at Cal Rep, and will be the Education/Literary Director starting this fall. Additionally, she is currently working as the Company Manager for Unorganized Crime, a world-premiere play running through the end of May at the Elephant Theatre in Hollywood.

She would like to extend her love and gratitude to the LMU Theatre Department for their support and guidance over the years.
