Nick Gardin

Properties Master, 3rd season

This is Nick's third season with the festival working in the Properties Department. He has been an intern, Assistant Properties Artisan, and now the Properties Master for the company. At the beginning of his theatre career, Nick worked in a haunted attraction for five years, where he developed his love of theatre, props, and all things creepy. Nick received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Design and Production with an emphasis in Props from Purdue University in December 2017. He is now pursuing his Master of Fine Arts in Props at Ohio University. Three days following the end of the 2018 TSF season, Nick will be marrying his wonderful fiancée, Kathleen Easterling, who he met while they were both working at TSF during his first season. Nick is very honored and enthusiastic to be returning to the company for another season, as it holds a special place in his heart.
