We would like to introduce you to one of our Fall Marketing Interns, Chase Norman. Chase was born and raised in St. Louis and has just returned home after graduating college. She attended the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television and received her degree in Film Production with an emphasis on Directing. During her four years in Los Angeles, Chase spent most of her time on set or working at her internship at a small film studio. Currently, she works remotely for an LA publishing company, advising authors how to make their books more marketable for film adaptions. In her free time she loves to goof around with friends, see movies and plays, and write. We caught up with Chase to ask her five fabulous questions.
What are you most excited about becoming a Fox marketing intern?
I am extremely excited about becoming a Fox Marketing intern because I can't wait to learn more about marketing, which has always interested me. Also, I have to admit that I am just the tiniest bit obsessed with the Fox Theatre. Okay, very obsessed. It is an unbelievably gorgeous building and as a film student, I can’t help but have time-traveling daydreams about the theater as an old movie palace. My mom introduced me to the Fox when I was about five, and then began taking me to a show or two every year. She instilled in me a love of live theatre and we always had an amazing time here. Now that my mom has passed away, the Fox will always hold a special place in my heart, because it is filled with so many wonderful family memories.
What was the first Broadway show you ever saw?
The first theatrical performance that I can vividly remember was CINDERELLA at the Fox. I was nine years old and still very much in the Disney princess phase. I remember literally gasping during the transformation scene, when shabby Cinderella disappeared behind her carriage for an impossibly short amount of time before reemerging with full hair and makeup, wearing the most beautiful dress I had ever seen.
If you could see any performance at the Fox, what would you choose?
If I could see any show at the Fox it would probably be HAIRSPRAY because it is such a fun, feel-good musical. I missed the performance a few years ago, so I would love for it to come back!
What show are you most excited about this season at the Fox? Why?
I am very excited to see one of my favorite classics, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, come to the Fox this year. But I am also eagerly awaiting IF/THEN and BEAUTIFUL because I have never seen them before and I have heard great reviews.
What do you think is the most Fabulous thing about St. Louis
The most Fabulous thing about St. Louis is the people! Living in another part of the country these last few years has given me a great appreciation of the friendly, down-to-earth people in my hometown. I love how it is customary for strangers to smile and say hello as they pass on the street. St. Louis has a wonderful sense of community that is completely unique.
