We’re delighted to announce two new additions to Red Monkey Theater Group’s leadership team for the 2017-2018 season: Managing Director Rachel Tamarin and Education Director Amelia Huckel-Bauer.
New Managing Director Rachel Tamarin graduated Magna Cum Laude from SUNY Geneseo in 2013 with a double major in theater and psychology and a minor in women’s studies. Her involvement with Red Monkey began with an internship in spring 2014. She has gone on to work on 13 productions with the company, most recently directing DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE by Sarah Ruhl in Spring 2017, having previously directed Boise, Idaho as part of the Red Monkey Variety Show. She has served as production stage manager for the past two seasons, including Red Monkey’s recent productions of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, Neil Gaiman’s NEVERWHERE, and SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE ADVENTURE OF THE COPPER BEECHES (in partnership with M&M PAC).
New Education Director Amelia Huckel-Bauer has been a regular on stage for Red Monkey since 2014. She appeared this past season as Hunter in NEIL GAIMAN’S NEVERWHERE. Amelia holds a BFA in Acting from Tisch, NYU and an MA in Educational Theater from Steinhardt, NYU, and she recently founded Elora Theater Arts, an educational theater company.
