Introducing Shannon Knapp, Communications Manager!
We are excited to announce the newest addition to the HowlRound team, Shannon Knapp! Shannon joins us in mid-April as our new Communications Manager. In this role, Shannon will create and implement communications strategies to advance awareness and the impact of our work to amplify progressive, disruptive ideas about theatre and connect theatremakers worldwide.
Shannon Knapp (she/her/hers) is a communications professional, director, and sound designer recently of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a director she strives to create radically collaborative rehearsal rooms and came to the world of communications through this work. Shannon believes that theatremakers must innovate by looking to the emergence of new forms and concepts, which informs how she approaches communications. Shannon believes in disrupting the marketing status quo, and striving to create spaces for the equitable flow of ideas.
She holds a BA in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh and most recently served as Marketing Manager for Quantum Theatre. Shannon has spent the last decade developing plays and irreverent publicity schemes with her close collaborators at Non-State Actors, the Pittsburgh Classic Players, and folkLAB, as well as working frequently with off the WALL productions and Throughline Theatre Company. When not making theatre, she loves to read novels, play Dungeons and Dragons, and take way too many pictures of her cat.
Please join us in welcoming Shannon!
