Class of 2010



I returned to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2012 and have continued to work in theatre and film focusing on producing work with a distinctly Malaysian narrative. I've either worked as an actor, director, educator, producer, or project manager on these projects. I've also expanded my work in Singapore beginning 2015 by collaborating with theatre artists there on new projects. I was named 2013 Man of The Year for Theatre in the regional August Man magazine and nominated for multiple national theatre awards as well as the recent Malaysian Film Festival. I occasionally teach at University of Malaya and continue to run workshops around the country.






Since graduating from the Asolo in 2010 Kirstin has worked steadily in Chicago as a leading actor, director and teacher. In Chicago she has worked for theatres such as: Northlight Theatre, The Raven, North Park University, Jedlicka Performing Arts Center and Akvavit. In 2014 Kirstin got to check off one of her dream roles when she got to play Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire. Kirstin teaches theatre at Harold Washington College and North Park University and is a proud company member and casting director of Akvavit Theatre. 







Currently living/surviving in New York City! I currently earn my rent working for Equinox Fitness in their corporate offices. It's the most flexible job ever and they support every theatrical endeavor I have. They know why I am in NYC, and it has nothing to do with Fitness. I volunteer at a new works theater company in town (The Workshop Theater). I do everything from Act in one act fests and readings there to manage their box office. I also am an avid member of another group called The Shakepeare Forum which advocates for Shakespeare in the classroom and after school, particularly in areas that have no arts funding or drama departments. 





The 2010 Class: Ghafir Akbar, Kristin Franklin, Sarah Gavitt, Hannah Goalstone, Alexandra Guyker, Peter Mendez, Nissa Perrott, Kevin Stanfa, Bethany Weise.
