About Courtney

Courtney Boches graduated with honors from Ithaca College with a B.S. in Television-Radio and minors in Scriptwriting and Business. She has worked for All My ChildrenMalcolm in the Middle, and in NBC's Entertainment Publicity department and has experience in an agency, writers' office, production, costume design, and production management. After graduation, she served as a Page in the Guest Relations department at CBS Television City in Hollywood, where, among many other tasks, she wrote the name tags for The Price is Right while wearing an amazing red blazer (photographic proof / blackmail at right).

 

Upon returning to Pennsylvania from California, Courtney attended Villanova University and graduated with an M.A. in Theatre in May 2014. She was awarded a full tuition assistantship to work in Villanova Theatre's costume shop.  She appeared on stage as "Trix the Aviatrix" in The Drowsy Chaperone, directed by Villanova University President and Barrymore Award winner Rev. Peter Donohue.

 

In fall 2013, she costume designed the creative re-imagining of the morality play Everyman as her thesis project.  She attended the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (Region 2) with her designs for Everyman in January 2014.

 

Upon graduation, she began her professional design career in Philadelphia with Twelfth Night with Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company. In fall 2014, she began internship with prestigious William Ivey Long Studios in New York City working on the new Susan Stroman musical Little Dancer

 

Courtney works with local theatres and schools as a freelance director, teacher, and designer, working with kids ranging in age from 7 - college. In summer 2017, Courtney had the honor of working with a brand new musical, Dorian Gray, in the New York Musical Festival. With the production as an actor since its initial reading, she was thrilled to reprise her role of Mrs. Vane (and two smaller roles!) in NYC at the Acorn Theatre and to also serve as costume designer.

 

She is currently the costume shop manager at Wolf Performing Arts Center, an adjunct faculty member and wardrobe supervisor at Arcadia University, and works professionally as a freelance director and costume designer.  She is also a writer and performer and currently looking for ways to merge her experience in television and media with her work as a theatre artist and independent scholar.
