Mica Pointer (MA, 1st year) Mica is thrilled to be joining the team of graduate students here at the University of Oregon. Mica gained his BA in Theatre at Eastern Washington University (EWU) where he minored in History, Philosophy, Screenwriting, and Film Studies. His previous work in living history and historical reenactments gives him an interest in how theatre can be used in the museum environment to bring history to life, though his mixed education in Film and Theatre gives him an appreciation for the art of storytelling in all it’s permutations. Though his primary interest is in Theatre History and Dramaturgy, he also has experience in the realm of design, having worked for four years at EWU Theatre’s costume shop, and has designed several shows on his own, including Aspire Community Theatre’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. His involvement with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, local 93, allowed him to work as a dresser for the touring productions of Les Miserables and Disney’s The Lion King, for which he was the principal dresser for Scar and Zazu. Here at the University of Oregon, Mica hopes to further his knowledge in the process of Dramaturgy, and spends his time trying not to get bludgeoned by acorns.
