Summer Student Blog Post: Nice to Meet You!

Hello Everyone!


My name is Holly Lohnes, and I am one of the summer students working with Quick As A Wink Theatre Society this summer! You will be hearing from me this summer as I will be posting blogs to keep you up to date on what I have been up to and what has been going on with Quick As A Wink. This is my first summer working with Quick As A Wink, and I am so excited to get started!

So, a little bit about me: I graduated from Acadia University in 2017 with an Undergrad in Music. I am now back at Acadia doing my Education degree, and I have just finished my first year. Outside of school, I am a passionate conductor; I have been the Music Director of the Kings County Concert Band since October of 2017, and I have been the assistant Music Director with the New Horizons band since September of 2017. I also teach beginner and intermediate music lessons to people of all ages. I have experience with singing in both solo, group, and choir performances and Musical Theatre performances. I have been a part of different drama and Musical productions such as Oliver, Annie, The Wizard Of Oz, and The Big Bad Musical.

Earlier this week, I got to meet a few lovely people who are on the board, including Ally, Karen, and Jennifer, and Artistic Director Toven. I am so excited to get started and to be working with this amazing community.

Another thing I have been working on this week is finding a drama production for one of our camps. I have found some good contenders, but stay tuned for what our final decision is going to be. And don’t forget, Seussical is coming up very shortly, the production opens June 1st!

That’s all for now, but I will be back soon.
