Ashley J. Nickas (Assistant Managing Director) Ashley is honored to be returning to the Planet Connections team, but this year she’s wearing a new hat.

In years past, you’ve probably see her running from theatre to theatre and up and down ladders. In fact, Planet Connections is what allowed Ashley to take the leap of faith to move to NYC from Memphis, TN three years ago. She started out as a Tech Apprentice then a Tech Manager for the festival.

In addition to Planet, Ashley is an AEA Stage Manager. Some of her favorite credits include being the touring stage manager for Moonglow Productions’ Secret Comedy of Women: Girls Only, the Stage Management Intern for the Broadway company of Wicked, and recently the Assistant Stage Manager for Smile at Manhattan School of Music.
