Emily Selden & Firefly Sky Productions
In our ongoing insiders’ peek at the good people joining the production of Los Angeles’ first Fringe Festival, I would like to introduce you to Emily Selden.
Here’s a greetings direct from Emily:
Emily Ann Selden dreams of the time when southern California will have a fringe festival to call it’s own- that time is now. With a wealth of theater and business experience she is excited to partner her Westwood based company, Firefly Sky Productions, with Hatchery Arts.
She began her theater career by winning “drama member of the year”, propelling her into college with a scholarship culminating in the completion of a Bachelors in Acting and a Masters in Production Management both in Theater Arts at Humboldt State University. Fulfilling an internship with Dell’ Arte International School of Theater in Blue Lake, CA, she taught K-12 students in their “Education through Art” program- expanding the program and realizing a passion for “Commedia”. As a veteran of Renaissance Faire she is also a fan of “Environmental Theatre”. More recently, at Victor Valley College in Victorville, CA she served as Theater Faculty while working as Talent Manager for two clients.
As an accomplished producer she has managed the American College Theater Festival, Reggae on the River, and the Humboldt International Film Festival, among others. With her passion for the arts, theater, education and their ability to change the world she looks forward to a wonderfully creative collaboration with Hollywood Fringe.
