Max Pagel is a prodigy of technical theatre and event production. Before even attaining legal drinking age, Max was named the Lighting Director/Master Electrician at the 2015 Castleton Opera Festival, as well as spent over a year as the Technical Lead at West of Lenin. At PNTA, Max has designed events for some of the largest names in the Puget Sound region, including Starbucks, Seattle Public Schools, Nyhus Communications, Kennedy Catholic High School, and Galvanize. On winter weekends, you’ll find Max up at Summit Central in the Cascade Mountains, teaching for Powderpigs Ski School.
Alyson started in the retail store at PNTA two years ago and now is the force behind all those ES emails. She has a Masters in Stage and Event Management from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and moonlights as a freelance stage manager around Seattle. When not elbow deep in production work, she is usually in her kitchen, baking and making up new recipes.
Growing up in Berlin, Germany, Patrick has been able to explore and study the theater world on the other side of the globe where he took part in the German apprenticeship program. Originally designed as a three-year program, Patrick was able to obtain his degree as an event technician in only two years’ time. His work at the “Schlosspark Theater Berlin”, which goes all the way back to 1804, and the iconic political cabaret theater “Die Wühlmäuse” introduced him to high technical responsibilities and practices at a young age. After working in the theater world, he expanded his horizon to larger productions and worked with names such as P!NK, Volbeat, CATS, and John Legend. Moving to Seattle has gotten Patrick involved with PNTA, where he is happy to be the newest member of our Event Services department.
In addition to working with PNTA, Graham is a freelance ME and programmer at several area theatres, including West of Lenin and Seattle Public Theatre.
