Amanda West, Director of Production
Amanda West joined the nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center in 2010 as the Assistant Production Manager, steadily advancing to her current appointment as the Director of Production. Amanda is a proud graduate of Texas Wesleyan University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, and attributes her success to a variety of professional work experience, a well-rounded theatrical education, an unbridled passion for the arts and a keen appetite for puzzles.
Amanda’s early work as an electrician, board operator, lighting and sound designer, scenic painter and carpenter provided a solid foundation for the pursuit of her technical theatre career. Her more recent experience ranges from the design and sale of permanent lighting systems to technical direction in both educational and professional theatres. Throughout the years Amanda has maintained her one true love of making theatre, designing more than 45 professional shows from lighting to video, scenery and sound. Her work can regularly be seen on the stages of Theatre Three, Uptown Players and The Drama Club for which she has received multiple local awards and nominations.
