Junior

Since 8th grade, Falcon Playhouse has been my home away from home. Theater is such a magical and transformative art form, and I have grown to enjoy every second of it, whether that be on or backstage. I am so grateful for the connections and friendships I have made here, and I am honored to serve the Playhouse as the President for the 24-25 season. As president, it is my job to continue to promote and encourage the warm, welcoming environment we have at the playhouse. I also take care of many planning and management jobs, keep the board running smoothly, and push the playhouse in new directions, so we can do bigger and greater things! When not acting, I enjoy playing tennis, robotics, hanging out with my dog, drawing, and listening to the goat himself, Kendrick Lamar.

As a Senior and Vice President I’m excited to help assist the board in any way I can to help better the playhouse by helping foster its welcoming atmosphere and continuing the safe space that is the Falcon Playhouse. I help make sure board stays on track by holding everyone responsible and helping out the president in any way I can. Outside of theater I love reading books such as ‘The Raven Cycle’ by Maggie Stiefvater. I also love writing stories and plays and I of course love to sing and act. I love watching shows like ‘Hair’ and ‘The Outsiders’ and I plan on pursuing musical theater in college. I hope to be a friendly face that anyone in the theater can come up to at any time with questions.

Hi! I’m so excited to take on the role of Historian and be a part of the Falcon Playhouse for one more year. I’ve been doing shows here since my freshman year as an actor and a technician, and the experience has been nothing short of wonderful. I especially love being onstage along with my cast mates to tell stories and inspire others through the art of theater. Outside of performing, I like to read, do gymnastics, listen to music, and spend time with my friends. As a Historian, I get to hone my creativity to display the Playhouse’s past achievements, productions, and alumni while also capturing the essence of and documenting the present. I am very passionate about making new memories and creating the same safe space in the theater that I have found through this playhouse!

MEMBER AT LARGE

Jay Butcher (she/they)

Senior

As a senior, this will be my fourth and final year with the Falcon Playhouse. I’ve participated in every production since I was a freshman, accumulating over 1300 hours and earning the title of National Honors Thespian, so I have a lot of experience in theatre: as an actor, technician, dancer, and leader. I’ve held positions such as Scenic Charge, performed as Understudies, Supporting Roles, and Ensemble, and served as Improv Captain for three terms, serving as one of our two improv representatives last year. I’ve also designed some of our production posters! As a member at large, I act as a representative for our playhouse in board meetings, discussing your ideas with our officers from a different perspective, helping with various committees, and overall just being a friendly face in the playhouse you can talk to! I strive to collect ideas and feedback from our active members and act as somewhat of a liaison between the board and our troupe members to make sure they get discussed, since approaching officers out of the blue or speaking out without a guaranteed audience can be intimidating. Outside of theatre, I enjoy photography, ballet, painting, and volleyball, as well as sewing, reading, directing, and writing. I dabble in many different areas, so I consider myself a jack of all trades!  If you ever have any questions about the playhouse or otherwise, I’ll always be willing to lend a hand and answer to the best of my ability! @jaybutcherr
