All aboard! Carina is from South Dakota but studied Theater Arts at Minnesota State University Moorhead, in Moorhead, MN. While living in the Fargo/Moorhead area, Carina worked as a freelance theater artist directing, choreographing, prop designing, stage managing, teaching, and acting. Some of their favorite projects include Darkness Like A Dream (as Hermia), The Jungle Book (as Baloo), Eurydice (Director), Cinderella: If the Shoe Fits (Director/Choreographer), A Year with Frog and Toad (Stage Manager) and Disney’s The Little Mermaid (Stage Manager/Prop Designer). In Fall of 2018, Carina made their way to The Rose Theater to start as a Teaching Artist Fellow. Now as a Teaching Artist Contract, Carina has been seen on stage in Winnie the Pooh (as Winnie the Pooh), Ella Enchanted (as Olive), and now back for a second time in The Little Engine That Could! (reprising the role of Piper). Carina would love to thank Hayley and Michael for being an absolute dream to work with, Stephanie for her fearless guidance and storytelling, Meghan and Kira for their brilliant leadership, and the entire production team for bringing this story to life.
