We almost called this article: “Our Interns, Our Angels” - because we LOVE our interns!  Katherine Reardon and Mitchell-lee van Rooij joined the Singnasium family this year as interns.  Both are getting their masters degrees in Arts Administration at Baruch College.  And both have been tirelessly working to further our cause.  From researching outreach opportunities to setting our social media on fire, they’ve jumped in with both feet to our Singnasium family and we couldn’t be happier to have them!  Let’s meet our interns!

Katherine Reardon

Katie Rose Reardon is a graduate student at Baruch College studying Arts Administration. She obtained her B.A. in English Literature with a minor Theatre at East Stroudsburg University in 2016. She has performed in several theatrical productions in New York City throughout the last few years as well as appearances in television and film. She has volunteered with Voices Inside, which is a theatre rehabilitation program to help incarcerated adults in Kentucky learn compassion, empathy, and human connection through the arts. She established her own virtual play reading platform during the live performance drought to help encourage her peers and artists around the country to continue nurturing their passions for the arts! In her free time, she is currently training for the 2021 New York City Marathon and hosts a book club! She’s beyond excited to have the opportunity to intern with Singnasium and has loved her experience so far!
