Lead People, Manage Process
Ashton Williams is a Production and Stage Manager for Theater and Live-Events. She earned a BA in Technical Theater from California Lutheran University, and earned her MFA in Creative Producing and Management from California Institute of the Arts. At CalArts she fine tuned her techniques under the mentoring of Jimmie McDermott, a Del Hughes Award recipient. Ashton's edification and skill set have been enhanced by world travel throughout her education—studying theater and the Renaissance in Florence, Italy while simultaneously volunteering with Ronda della Carita and UNICEF. She has also been certified by Eventbrite in Event Sponsorship for demonstrating industry expertise in sponsorship sales and event management strategy.
Her passion for entertaining started at a young age and by 12 years old she was managing her first theatrical show. Since then Ashton has been fortunate to work with companies and clients such as Madison Square Garden, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Westside Theater with John Legend, and BRC Imagination Arts to name a few. While at BRC, Ashton worked on the THEA Award winning team for the Jameson Distillery on Bow St.
Most recently, Ashton could be found on staff at Universal Studios Hollywood as apart of the Halloween Horror Nights team.
