    Stage Manger

    Avery is a sophomore in college at USC and has enjoyed being reunited with some of her high school theatre family for this show, Cabaret. Her previous experience includes Goddess of Tears (Aphrodite), Playtime (Playwright/Sybil), Puffs (Narrator), The Actors Nightmare (Stage Manager/Maid), The Second Brightest Nose (Dasher), Frozen Jr. (Director/Stage Manager/Costume Designer) and The Wizard of Oz (Munchkin/Jitterbug/Ozian/Winkie). Avery is amazed at this Perfectly Marvelous cast and crew for all their hard work, and so happy to once again be part of the Posey’s theatre magic.
