Education associate joins staff
Perseverance Theatre

  Christina Apathy
Christina Apathy joins the Perseverance Theatre as education associate after 12 years residing in New York City's West Village.

Born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Florida, she received her bachelor's of arts degree in theater arts from Rollins College in Winter Park and went on to study through a graduate assistantship scholarship at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Acting Program.

Upon earning her master's of fine arts degree, Apathy's first major role was playing Hero in William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" at The Guthrie in Minneapolis.

From there she continued performing in the US regions at Seattle Rep, the McCarter, Syracuse Stage, The Hangar, the Kennedy Center, Indiana Rep, and the Pittsburgh Public Theater among others; and at The Actor's Studio, Epic Theatre Center, the American Theatre of Actors, Queens TiP, and the Promenade in New York City.

Her favorite roles include Julia in "The Two Gentlemen of Verona," Anne in "The Diary of Anne Frank," Masha in "The Seagull," Nausicaa in Homer's "Odyssey" and Lady Chiltern in Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband."

Apathy has worked with respected directors and teachers such as Tony-winner Mary Zimmerman and Arena Stage founder Zelda Fichandler, and toured the country with the renowned Acting Company. Most recently she filmed the lead in an independent short titled "2nd Avenue" which shot in rural North Carolina last fall.

Apathy looks forward to her new life and work in Juneau, especially coordinating the Prologue Shakespeare-in-Schools program and directing and guiding the Young Company.

The Young Company was first developed to provide theatrical opportunities to young people in the world of Shakespeare performance. This endeavor took shape in the form of The Young Shakespeare Training Company. In addition to Shakespeare in the fall, young performers explore other classic writers from the world dramatic canon.
