  Kasson Marroquin
Third-year MFA Stage Management Candidate


BA in Theatre (Stage Management), University of North Texas


Kasson Marroquin is a third-year MFA Stage Management candidate at UC San Diego, and he is excited to begin this new collaborative adventure! Kasson received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre with an emphasis in Stage Management and a minor in English from the University of North Texas in May of 2012, where he also received an honors award for Outstanding Student in Theater in 2012. Kasson then served as an all encompassing production intern for the American Dance Festival during the summers of 2012 and 2014, where he continued his education in learning all aspects of working as a technician in this field from load-in to load-out of each company. While an intern at ADF in 2012 Kasson stage managed an original dance piece titled Akulalutho (choreographed by Reggie Wilson) and designed lights for an excerpt from Labyrinth (choreographed by Mark Dendy). During his time at ADF in 2014 he stage managed an original work titled Big Daddy (choreographed by Stephen Petronio) as well as designed lights for an excerpt from Every Little Movement (choreographed by Gerri Houlihan). Kasson has worked as a freelancing professional stage manager and general theater technician in Dallas, TX for the past 3 years since his graduation. Kasson hopes to spend time after graduating from UC San Diego touring with a professional dance company, and continuing to explore his options as a collaborative stage manager and technician in many fields and locations.
