After you graduate from Monroe High School it will affect your life somehow. For Kate Tayler, MHS inspired her to attend Bowling Green State University and graduate with a degree in  Design and Technical Theatre with a specific focus on stage management. MHS inspired Tayler in many areas in her academic career. 

Tayler was an editor on Lotus Leaf and also was vice president of calc club. Tayler really enjoyed english and math in highschool. 

Her senior year she auditioned for the fall musical and that’s where she fell in love with stage management. When Tayler got casted as the stage manager in the fall musical she wished she would have joined the drama club sooner. 

Tayler applied to BGSU as a statistics major, but later went on to change it to english and creative writing. She finally ended up majoring in Technical Theatre. 

The years she spent at BGSU Tayler served as the president of the honorary theatre society, Alpha Psi Omega. She also worked as a stage manager on six mainstage productions.

During Tayler’s college career she even wrote and staged her own production titled “Lemonade Stand”.The onstage production was focused towards accessibility for neurodiverse kids especially with autism and ADHD.

Tayler graduated with honors distinction, summa cum lad, and she also earned the president’s award for academic achievement. 

Over the summer Tayler will be production managing Nathan Kubik’s film “Ruddigore” and will be looking for other stage management jobs. She will be also applying to MFA programs. 

Tayler is excited to see where her path will take her post grad life. She is looking forward to some stress free months with family and her cat, Carter.
