Brandon Sewall is thrilled to join the Skidmore College Theatre Department as Assistant Technical Director. Before this role, Brandon served as the Scene Shop Specialist at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, where he oversaw scenic operations for theatre, musical theatre, opera, music, and dance. He has additional experience collaborating with students as Technical Director at Wilkes University, Assistant Technical Director at Albright College, and Scene Shop Advisor for Princeton University’s Triangle Club, one of the oldest collegiate theater troupes in the United States. Brandon also worked as a Scenic Carpenter at McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, New Jersey, building scenic elements for all resident productions.
Some of Brandon’s favorite productions he has worked on include The Threepenny Opera (Lycoming College), Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (McCarter Theatre Center), A Christmas Carol (McCarter Theatre Center), Goodnight Nobody (McCarter Theatre Center), Sleuth (McCarter Theatre Center), and Sweeney Todd (Sam Houston State University).
Brandon’s work aims to create inviting and innovative theatrical sets for each production he works on. He does this through continued learning and exploration with students and colleagues to collaboratively engineer scenic pieces that enhance and bring theatre to life.
