Welcome to my page! I’m Amy Rauchwerger, an AEA SM from Miami, FL. Growing up in the theatre atmosphere shaped my accepting nature and ability to multitask. I’m a proud Alum from Florida State University (Go Noles!) and have been working steadily in the South Florida Theatre Community since graduating with my B.A. degrees in Theatre and Creative Writing in 2014. Along the way I’ve picked up a few skills like learning to manage social media and becoming an experienced, dedicated member of the crochet community. I love to read, bake new cookie recipes, and discuss Harry Potter. My door is always open!
WHAT I'VE DONE
Over the last handful of years I’ve had the honor to work at various theatres across South Florida such as: Zoetic Stage, Gablestage, City Theatre, SMDCAC, The Wick, and The Broward Center for the Performing Arts. There are incredible projects I have had a hand in shaping from an organization standpoint such as Overnight Theatre Project with Theatre Lab, and large scale award ceremonies such as The Carbonell Awards. In 2016 I accepted a position as Production Coordinator at the South Dade Cultural Arts Center. I spent two wonderful years there with a fantastic team as we presented and produced theatre, music, and dance specifically for the community the center serves. From 2018-2020 I served as Zoetic Stage's full time Company Manager. This position taught me an incredible amount about what it takes to run a full scale non-profit theatre company, and I am forever grateful for the experience.
In September of 2022 I set off on a new adventure-- moving to New York City to attend Columbia University in my pursuit of my MFA in Stage Management. I am currently in my second year of studies under the program direction of Michael Passaro. While our first year was spent on zoom due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are back in person and better than ever. This program has been incredibly exciting, humbling, and packed with knowledge for the rehearsal room and beyond, and I've met some amazing people along the way. Some of our professors at CU are Matthew DiCarlo, Adam Hess, Justin Scribner, Bonnie Panson, Cody Renard Richard, and more-- each one with a different specialty and incredible knowledge to impart.
If anyone has thesis ideas...send them my way! I will be graduating in 2023 and will continue to work in Stage Management in the city. I'm always up for a coffee date in midtown!
Some moments from my favorite experiences throughout the years
This design by Natalie Taveras is one of my favorites! We had a double doughnut turn table, which is just a fun as it sounds.... Lighting Design by Rebecca Montero
The Curious Incident Cast as they take their final bows. This was one of the special ones. It was our most challenging show to produce, yet--everyone was a team player and it was an unforgettable experience.

We had a special visitor for one of our performances of S4K Time to Play!
Jeni, who portrayed Fosca in our production of Passion, brought us all very "in-character" valentine gifts when we had our long tech tech on Cupid's holiday.
Nilo Cruz's world premier was so exciting we even made it into a Japanese Newspaper in 2015!
Stripped was my first show PSMing with Zoetic, it holds a special place in my heart.
WOW! This show is a wild ride! Elena plays over 20 different characters and I call over 300 cues in 90 minutes! #teamworkmakesthedreamwork
