MacKenzie is in her Junior year here at IU. She is creating her own degree in Theatre Production and Design with a focus in lighting. She spent this past summer at The Santa Fe Opera as an Electrics Apprentice and served as the Head Deck Electrician for The Italian Girl in Algiers and the Assistant Deck Electrician for Candide. She is interested in all aspects of production and design, from sound and lighting, to production and stage management and is honored to have the opportunity to be creating a degree in which she can do just that.
