Theatre Board

Matthew Sirota

Hi, I’m Matthew Sirota, your DGN theatre president for this school year! I am mostly known for my acting roles and for my outgoing and energetic personality. (My favorite crew department is Scenery, though!) I’m so excited to work with my fellow board members and all student thespians as a whole to make this the most engaged year of theatre yet! My favorite musical is “Into The Woods,” and I LOVE cheesecake.

Kate France

My name is Kate France and I am a junior here at DGN. I am so excited to be part of Theatre Board this year! I act in the shows here at DGN, but I have done work on different crews as well. I love the musical Beauty and the Beast and I can’t wait for this school year in DGN theatre! 

Maggie Cummins

Hi! My name is Maggie Cummins and I am so excited to be on Theatre Board this year. I am a senior this year (which is crazy) and I have been doing theatre all four years here at DGN. I primarily act but I have worked with crew here and there. I love Shrek the Musical and my favorite food is bread. 

Grace Troelstrup

Hi!! My name is Grace Troelstrup, I’m a senior and apart of your Theatre Board this year!! I’ve been involved in nearly every show since my freshman year and am so lucky to be able to be apart of this amazing community, I’m so excited to be apart of those that help cultivate our theatre program. My favorite musical is Rent! 

Emily Kyroudis

Hi there! I’m Emily Kyroudis and I’m one of your Theatre Board members this year! I’ve worked on almost every show since my freshman year and I’ve seen many sides of the production process. I primarily work as a scenic designer and assistant technical director, so you’ll likely find me in the shop throughout the year. I can’t wait to see what magic we create this year! My favorite show is “The Play that Goes Wrong” and my dog’s name is Ari.
