The Conservatory Welcomes Whitlock
Whitlock

The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University is proud to welcome Evangeline Rose Whitlock as assistant professor of stage management. Whitlock's impressive artistic trajectory and innovative teaching philosophy uniquely qualify her to lead the BFA program in Stage Management.

Whitlock has experience on and off Broadway, in regional theaters across the country, on international and national tours, with ballet and contemporary dance companies, and with large-scale corporate and industrial events. Her particular interest as a stage manager centers on blending an ethics of care with professional theatre practice to facilitate the creation of original community-engaged work and theatre for social justice.

Prior to her appointment at Webster, Whitlock lived and worked in New York City and was the visiting assistant arts professor of stage management at New York University. She has also taught and mentored student stage managers at Adelphi University, Brooklyn College, and Baylor University.

Whitlock describes her approach to stage management and teaching as holistic. She believes "that the entire body, mind, and soul must be engaged in the manager's work. I assert that the ends do not justify the means in theatrical work; rather, the process is equally as important as the product. The end product will hold little to no meaning if the process of getting there hasn't deepened the sense and value of community and artists working together."
