Kori Broadnax

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to my Profile!

About me:

Kori Broadnax originally hails from Harlem, NY. Since childhood, she has been apart of the theatre community, performing in school concerts, plays, and musicals. Her interest in Stage Management began after she had the opportunity to Stage Manage her high school’s production of Godspell, and as the saying goes, from there the rest is history.

Since attending Purchase Kori has fallen more in love with being backstage. She enjoys being apart of productions from the ground up and floating between creative and technical roles as a liaison between production departments. She is grateful that attending Purchase has gifted her the opportunity to work in theatre, events, and dance expanding her knowledge in the theatrical world. Being a Stage Manager has taught Kori to be practical, communicative, industrious, and selfless both in her professional and personal life.

Please find below, selected examples of Kori’s work. If interested in learning more, provided are links to contact info, as well as Kori’s resume and portfolio.
