Emma Percy, a Class of 2015 graduate of the King’s Academy, will soon be headed to Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.
Percy has been a part of the King’s Theatre Company’s production staff over the past three years, working her way up to head lighting designer. She has technically designed light plots for both black box productions and main stage productions. Most recently, her incredible work was seen in the spring production of Aida.
Percy has been accepted into the highly competitive theatre program of Marymount Manhattan College, where she will be studying technical theater. U.S News & World Report has listed the theater program at Marymount Manhattan College in the top 10 programs in the country.
Percy was accepted into the program after auditioning with 1,300 other graduating seniors across the country. She will follow in the footsteps of some outstanding Marymount alumni, such as Tony-nominated actress Annaleigh Ashford of Broadway’s Legally Blond and Wicked; Ta’Rea Campbell of Broadway’s Lion King, Aida and Book of Mormon; Adam Chanler-Berat of Broadway’s Next to Normal and Peter and the Star Catcher; Alexander Skarsgard of HBO’s True Blood; Melissa Benoist of Fox’s Glee; and many more.
TKA 2012 alum Alex Pate is presently studying in the technical theater program, while TKA 2014 graduate Katie McCoy is studying in the acting program.
Everyone at TKA congratulates Percy for her accomplishments and looks forward to seeing her represent the school in her future endeavors.
