Where Are They Now? AECT Alumni Feature
Audrey Tieman (Class of 2020)
Audrey is now doing an internship at the Cincinnati Opera where she works on the props for the upcoming shows. She says the experience is similar to working props for a show for All of Us Express but scaled up. Also, she says she’s learned a lot about building props from her time at All of Us Express and that has helped her a lot. She would like to say that All of Us Express does a great job at preparing people for higher education and theatre at a higher degree and that everyone should do theatre!

The Little Mermaid - Show Recap and Opening Night Reception
In case you missed our last show, The Little Mermaid was a great success and fun for all ages! This show had it all. Stellar acting & director, mesmerizing undersea creatures, and all of our backstage crews pulling together a magical environment.
If you’ve not made it to one of our Opening Night Receptions yet, we’d love for you to join us! Not just for parents of participants, ALL AECT friends and families are welcome! Cool give-aways, fun games and light refreshments.
