"My name is John Lattanzi and I am an intern for the Brown Paper Box Co. this summer! I will be running the social media accounts, assisting with box office, marketing, and any and all day to day administrative projects throughout the summer!
I will be a senior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I am pursuing a dual degree in Theatre and Speech and Hearing Science, concentrating in Theatre Studies and Neuroscience of Communication. Through that study, I hope to gain insight on how our voice and body language influence how others perceive us as people and also how we can manipulate that. With that, I hope to work as a director, in casting, in marketing, and to just spread knowledge and insight to the theatre community.
My previous theatre experience has been mainly cultivated at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I have worked on many productions at the Krannert Center for Performing Arts, The Armory Free Theatre, and with many student groups around campus. Some notable productions of my involvement are with Kingdom City at the Krannert Center as assistant to the director (directed by JW Morrissette), Iago’s Plot at the Krannert Center as assistant to the director in the spring of 2017 (directed by Shozo Sato), and as an editor and future director of Tony Fiorentino’s new play Cash Cows. On top of that, I am also the Student Coordinator for the Illinois High School Theatre Festival and the University of Illinois Theatre Department’s Student Playwright Outreach Theatre.
I’m very excited to work with the great people at the BPBCo. and am looking forward to a great summer!"
We are so excited to have John join our team for the summer! Welcome aboard! I-L-L!
