Ash’s passion for theater started when she was 4 years old, sitting backstage at Shenandoah University where her grandparents, Don and Nancy Black, were professors in Conducting and Classical Piano. She began acting throughout junior college and was offered an internship in Entertainment Production at Walt Disney World. After her internship, she was accepted to the University of North Carolina Wilmington and graduated with a degree in psychology along with a minor in theater. Post graduation she worked as the Painting and Properties Supervisor for UNCW’s Theater Department. During that time she worked as a stagehand and freelance lighting designer. She accepted a job at Filmwerks in Rocky Point as a Scenic Carpenter in 2020, after COVID-19 shut down production. She traveled the United States installing scenery for ESPN, NFL, CBS, and ABC. One of her installations can be seen locally at the Children’s Museum of Wilmington. After the shutdown, she went back to live production working for Local 417. She has been with Wilson Center since its opening performance “Sound and Space” and has always considered Wilson Center her “home” theater.
