Announced on July 17, 2020
Stephany Elliott has accepted the role of administrative assistant for the Department of Theatre at Chapman University, effective July 20, 2020. She will report directly to Department Chair and Professor John Benitz and will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the department, supporting faculty and students, and helping prospective students and their families learn more about the theatre program.
Stephany started work at Chapman in 2007, previously working for Molecular Devices, a biotech company located in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was hired to support Dr. William Hall, who was then dean of the College of Performing Arts. With the development and opening of Chapman’s Musco Center for the Arts in 2016, Dr. Hall became its founding dean and artistic director, and Stephany continued her work with him through the center’s grand opening and first four performance seasons.
A native of Orange County, Stephany holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology degree from California State University, Fullerton. She has raised two sons who are now young adults, and is rediscovering life as an empty-nester, enjoying visiting new towns, taking simple hikes and hanging out with her cats.
She looks forward to joining the College of Performing Arts staff once again!
