Bachelor of Fine Arts, 2005, Technical Theatre and Design
PJ Reeves is a 2005 graduate of TU who now works as assistant stage manager of the Beatles LOVE by Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas. Reeves said he was prepared for his career because of the hands on experience he gained while studying at TU.
"In my job, I juggle hundreds of details every day so that each show seems perfect to the audience," he said. "Fortunately, with TU's great learning environment, I earned my threatre degree by 'doing.'"
As a student, Reeves was expected to build sets, design lights, work in the shop and even perform on stage. He received a broad education in every element of theatre and that helps him understand the role of each person he works with today.
"After graduation, I went on to intern with Celine Dion, work for another Vegas show and spend eight months working on a cruise ship," Reeves said. "In each situation, I knew I was prepared for the job, thanks in part to the education and experience I gained at TU."
