Hi, I'm Anthony, I'm a scenic designer from New Bedford, Massachusetts. I have since found permanent residence in New York City. After studying Theater Design at Wagner College, I have had almost a decade of designing productions for myself and others across the country.
Throughout my time in the theater, I have had many opportunity to work in educational theater settings. In Spring 2019, myself and the students of Madison High School in Madison, NJ were awarded a multitude of accolades at the Papermill Rising Star Awards for our production of Bright Star including: Outstanding Scenic Achievement and Best Overall Production among several wins for acting and direction. I try to continue my work with them as much as I can.
While theater took its long intermission during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to start crafting some miniatures for me to share with a wider audience. Building these "minis" brought me immense joy during some crazy difficult times and to see them go to new homes has been very fulfilling. I'm excited to make more of these one of a kind pieces. You can see some of them on my Etsy at:
Because of these miniatures, In late 2021, was commissioned to design and build some models that were featured in the Winter 2022 Wagner magazine. The feature was paired with the article "A Light That Never Goes Out" about the impact of theater's long absence during the covid '19 pandemic. Most especially on my fellow Wagner alumni and how the community helped Broadway's back.
One of my favorite tools in theater is model making. If you're interested in a special commissioned "mini" feel free to send me a message through my contact page or my Etsy shop and we can start to plan the mini of your dreams!
