Travis DeCastro, School of Theatre associate director for production and head of the stage management program, has been named a United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Fellow.
DeCastro became a member of the Institute in 1993 when he attended the organization’s annual conference. During his 25 years of membership, he has sat on several committees, acted as mentor for members and served as the Institute’s treasurer.
USITT is a national organization of managers, designers, and technicians formed in 1960 to promote dialogue, research and learning among practitioners in theatre design and technology. For almost 60 years, the organization has functioned as a connection point for industry professionals and during that time, just more than 100 other USITT members have been honored with the title of Fellow.
