Michelle Goldman is PUPumped to take on the presidency of this lovely group. She is a sophomore with an undecided major (though a lot less undecided than this time last year!) and is pursuing certificates in theatre and global health. You will never ever find her on stage, but behind the scenes directing or stage managing. Her favorite PUP memory is when Nico drank squid ink during a board meeting.
Dylan Blau Edelstein '17 is a junior in the Spanish and Portuguese department. Having previously served as Special Projects Coordinator and performed in many PUP productions, he is excited to serve as Vice President and hopes that he can use the position to make PUP an even more accessible and inclusive organization. Outside of theater, he can be found studying somewhere cozy on campus, perhaps dreaming about being in a different country, and most likely singing to himself. Contact him if you have any questions, ideas, or thoughts about PUP!
Abby is a sophomore English major from New York City who loves piña coladas and getting caught in the rain. When she's not quoting cheesy song lyrics she can be found directing PUP's Dogfight or frolicking around campus looking for musical theater to watch. She is so excited to be on PUP board for her second year! PUPlove4ever
Michelle Navis '17 is a junior in the French department, with a focus in theater. She is very involved in theater tech and a growing number of the other aspects of theater, and has so far worked as both stage manager and assistant stage manager for several shows during her time at Princeton, including PUP shows: SOB '17, Cabaret, Dream a Little Dream, and Hair. She can't wait to put her organizational skills to use in the position of biz manager for PUP!
Lena is a member of the class of 2019 and is so excited to be taking on the role of Technical Director for PUP! Lena was introduced into the PUP world acting in Sex on Broadway (the all freshman show) and is so excited to contribute to future shows with PUP. If you'd like her do the worm in your show as she did in SOB, contact her via email.
Anna Zabel '19 is a Comparative Literature major with certificates in Film and Theater, probably (she is only a freshman). Anna loves special projects, jumpsuits, and all forms of alternative milk. She has yet to figure out how to spell theater (or theatre?) and is very insecure about it. Contact her if you want to propose a special project or just want to watch some Broad City!
Abby Melick '17 loves social media and all that jazz that comes with it: instagramin', tweetin', vine-in', fb-postin' and emailing up a storm. She has acted in shows all around campus and has been on PUP board since her freshman year.
Kirsten Hansen '19 is PUmPed to be apart ofyet another musical theater group on campus. Kirsten joined the PUP fam after directing an all-freshmen musical revue, Sex on Broadway, in addition to being a cast member in Triangle Club's fall show. She is a native of the O.C. (yes, the TV show) and is not afraid to vocalize her love for acai bowls, Coachella, and man buns. In her free time, Kirsten listens to EDM on vinyl or pretends to be at club soccer practice.
Victoria Davidjohn '19 is ridiculously psyched to be a new member of PUP board! She is a potential Pre-Med and MAE major that can only study well when she is listening to soundtracks of musicals she loves. Victoria cherishes anybody who will bring her hot chocolate, even during the summer.
Ben Diamond '19 is super excited that PUP has given him an outlet to combine two things he loves: getting creative with graphic design and getting involved with some sweet, sweet theater. He got started with PUP by performing in Sex on Broadway: This is College directed by the lovely Kirsten Hansen. Ben doesn't know what he wants to study because he's a freshman and normal. Fun fact: you may have seen him star in his most recent film role as the horse carcass in The Revenant.
Jessica Bailey is the wonderful Historian of PUP. She hasn't had much PUP experience outside of Sex on Broadway but is happy to say she will be in PUP'S production of Dogfight this Spring! In addition to PUP she is an avid member of both BodyHype and the Princeton University Chapel Choir. If you befriend her, she'll probably tell you at some point about the time she thought a "Cat" was a proper occupation for a fully functioning adult (and still does thanks to Andrew Lloyd Webber).
Marcelo Jaimes-Lukes ’19 is stoked to be joining the PUP Board as Box Office Manager. A prospective Woodrow Wilson School major, Marcelo has not yet had the pleasure of being in a PUP show, but has directed, produced, and acted in other shows at Princeton. His hobbies include playing the banjo, talking about how great Brooklyn is, and being mistaken for Dylan Blau Edelstein.
Cat Andre is a member of Princeton's class of 2017 and is very excited to be on PUP's board for the third year. Cat was first introduced to PUP by directing its freshman musical revue, Sex on Broadway '17, and went on to serve as the company's Publicity Press chair and Production Manager. Last season, Cat directed PUP's winter show, Hair, and is excited to serve as the company's social chair for her last year on PUP board.
Nico Krell '18 is an independent concentrator in Performance Studies with a certificate in Theatre and an unfinished certificate in Russian Language and Culture. He is a performer, director, and a life-long musical lover. If he could be a part of breakfast, he would be the piece of toast. He is so happy that you are able to read this.
Will Alvarado '19 loves working with all his theater people, especially when it comes to TECH! He likes to be involved in anything theater and musically based on campus, even though it stresses him out. His favorite pass times are singing, dancing, and planning how he can get to all 5 meals everyday.
Adam Hudnut-Beumler '17 couldn't be more pumped to be the Props Manager for PUP. Adam has been involved in many PUP productions, including The Drowsy Chaperone and Cabaret. He really does love props.
Evan Gedrich is a junior in the Neuroscience Department, with certificates in Theater and Music Theater. Evan digs the stage. He feels privileged to have this cozy spot on the underbelly of the PUPwebpage for his bio, and is glad to finally be taking advantage of it! PUP, woo!
