New Tech Director Takes Center Stage

Shorewood High School is excited to welcome multidisciplinary designer and tech theater “guru” Maylan Thomas to the drama department. Thomas has a MFA from the University of Iowa and brings 15 years of industry experience, including projects with major rock and country tours, Broadway scenery and stage mechanics, and musical superstars such as the Rolling Stones, Pink, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Bon Jovi, Beyoncé, and more.

“What drew my family and I to the area is the way in which the community values and nurtures the arts!” said Thomas. “All I can say is that we feel so grateful and at home already.” Thomas will get to showcase his work in this year’s drama productions, which will include "Little Shop of Horrors," "Rumors," and "Cabaret."

“We are very excited to add Maylan to the performing arts and drama staff,” said SHS Drama Director Joe King. “He brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and experiences from the professional technical theatre world, and I know that he is going to be able to hit the ground running on Day One to continue the excellence in technical theatre that the Shorewood community has come to expect."

Prior to his formal education Maylan served in the US Army. In the last four year of his career he served as the Production Manager for the US Army Solider Show. When not creating theatre, Thomas can be found spending time with his family.
