OHIO UNIVERSITY PROP SHOP 2019
My name is Nick Bartleson. I'm a current junior at Ohio University in the class of 2022. I'm pursuing a B.F.A in Stage Management and a B.F.A in Production Design and Technology with a focus in props artistry. I've been involved in theater for over 8 years. I've worked with numerous professional companies such as New Vision Dance Company, The Short North Stage, Tantrum Theatre, and Texas Shakespeare Festival among others.
I have a passion for both stage managing and props construction and I'm often finding they end up helping each other. I love working in stage management for shows and having the opportunity to use the skills I learned from props construction to help the production (and vice versa).
In addition to theatre I've also had experience with dance performance, film production, fashion shows, and stage/special effect makeup. I enjoy working in different performance settings and engaging in new experiences that challenge my skills and self.
