Lifeline welcomes new intern Meredith Crilly, who will be with us full-time until early May. Meredith hails from Knoxville, Tennessee and is a junior Theatre and Art double-major at Dordt College in Iowa. She comes to us through the Chicago Semester program which places students from rural colleges in semester-long internships in Chicago, providing a supported urban experience and exposure to the career of their choice.
Meredith is pursuing a career in costume design and will be assisting Christine Pascual on The Blue Shadow and Elizabeth Wislar on Neverwhere. She is also working in our box office and on numerous other Lifeline projects. In fact, when you’re next at Lifeline you’ll see evidence of Meredith’s activities — she has realized our long-ago plan to refurbish the lobby! Last week Erica handed Meredith the bag of fabric that we’ve been holding onto for the past three years and Meredith whipped out a box office curtain and re-upholstered the long bench cushion right by our entranceway. Snazzy!
