Introducing... Kaisi Haarstad
Hi, I'm Kaisi. I'm currently a directing and acting major at Coe College, and frequently appear in MainStage productions there, though I chose to assistant stage manage Tartuffe. Outside of the MainStage shows, I also love having the opportunity to direct in the student festivals we have each year. In fact, I enjoy them so much that one of my friends and I founded a new one in the fall of 2014. It was amazing to have so much support from everyone to put it on.
Above all, my passion is for musical theatre. Although I love contemporary pieces, I obsess over anything by Kern or found on any of Ben Bagley's Painted Smiles Albums. They are the most interesting thing I've ever encountered. If I'm not listening to music, I'm probably commandeering a practice space to sing.
