SIA TeamComments Off on Alison “Other New Intern” Dowling
I’m new (sort of) to Shakespeare in Action and excited to get on board with the Admin & Production Interns!! I was first introduced to SIA as a summer camp intern back in 2009 and so I’m eager to be back for more!
I’ve been passionate about theatre since I was little; acting in community theatre, taking extra-curricular classes and attending Rosedale Heights School of the Arts and the University College Drama Program at U of T. My love really started with Shakespeare though, and the Dream in High Park. I was six-years-old and totally mesmerized…I wanted to be on that stage so badly!
Currently though, the countdown is on and I’m soon-to-be a graduate of the University of Toronto. The past four years have been incredible, learning and challenging myself as an actor, as well as having the opportunity to delve a bit into production and design. Now? I’m not entirely sure, but here I am at SIA to learn a little bit more about the ins and outs of a Toronto (Shakespeare!!) theatre company!
Interesting side notes: I love kickboxing, I spent a month last summer at Oxford University taking a Shakespeare course and I currently work at an ice cream store (Ed’s Real Scoop!)
