ASC - Julia King

Group and Education Sales Manager 

Originally from Alexandria, Virginia and a life-long theatre kid, Julia is so thrilled to be the Group and Education Sales Manager at ASC.  Her love of ASC goes back to 2008 when she randomly went to see a production of The Comedy of Errors and fell back in love with theatre after a short absence from the stage.  Since then, she’s found her home in theatre box offices after dabbling in performance and directing.  She attended Eastern Mennonite University for undergrad and George Mason University to obtain a Masters in Arts Management.  While at GMU, she worked in Synetic Theater’s box office and interned at Provisions Library.  Her most recent stop prior to ASC was at the Community Arts Training (CAT) Institute in St. Louis where she was a part of the team that worked to teach artists and community workers collaborative skills.  Her graduate Capstone thesis, "Prison Performing Arts: a case study in community arts organizations and marketing", looked at the practical and ethical implications of marketing arts organizations that work in difficult areas.  Upon graduating, she was awarded the Erin Gaffney Award, which is given in honor of Erin’s spirit of respect for self, for others, and for the power of the arts to transform.

Julia has a passion for being the "connector" piece of any puzzle.  She often jokes that she is passionate about finding out what other people are passionate about.
