RILEY ALLEN (stage manager) graduated from Central Washington University in 2019 with a Bachelors in Theatre Design and Production, specializing in everything from design to stage management. After an unfortunate 20-month sabbatical, Riley is grateful to not only be working in the Theatre Arts again, but to be working with the Shedd Institute for his first professional production in the Pacific Northwest. He loves the fleeting, urgent energy of the performing arts. As an artist he aims to bring that energy to life, but more than anything else, as a team member Riley strives to be a calming presence in a medium that is, by its very nature, so often chaotic. Born in the Puget Sound area, Riley is excited to be experiencing Eugene for the first time.
