Michelle Herring

I currently live in Brooklyn, New York and am the Assistant Treasurer at the Astor Place Theatre, home of the Off-Broadway show “Blue Man Group.” After six and a half years of living in New York, I am actually making my move back to Colorado at the end of this month and will be heading to Aspen to manage the box office for Theatre Aspen’s summer season!

Since college I’ve mostly moved away from performance, as my personal artistic interests have focused more around writing and illustration. I’m currently working on a smattering of personal projects, including an illustrated book for adults about a cute dinosaur who’s got a lot of big life questions.

What does Dana V. Music mean to you?

Dana and Katie were two of the most influential teacher figures in my high school years. Being a young person is difficult as it is, but being a young person who wants to pursue performing arts professionally is even harder. Not only do Dana and Katie provide amazing and non-judgemental lessons, classes, and other resources at their studio, their warmth, kindness, and constant encouragement gave me the support I needed (and often struggled to find) to get into such a great collegiate theatre program. Dana and Katie are like artistic superheroes who truly go above and beyond for the sake of their students!
