Anthony Ficken

Hometown: Fremont, CA
Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, Concentration in Design/Tech

Give a little general information about yourself: how did you become interested in the arts? 
My dad would tell me his experiences while working in theater, and after trying out a few non-theater majors, theater just became the best fit for me.

What kind of career do you hope to have?
I hope to be a scenic and lighting designer.

What is your favorite thing about the Department of Theatre?
My favorite thing about the department is the faculty. Every professor I have had has shown they care about their students and want them to succeed after college.

Do you participate in any community activities or work in the Charlotte arts community?
I am currently an assistant scenic designer for the play Dragons Love Tacos. I also have done the lighting design for Robinson Hall Player's event called 24/7.

When you are not in class, studying, working or rehearsing, what do you like to do for fun?
I love to play video games, painting, and folding origami figurines.
