Joshua Olgineis grateful for the unique perspective and beautiful journey that theatre continues to provide him. This journey has taken him to many unexpected places and taught him that life is a series of roles and characters that we all must slip into. During Josh's journey he has worn many hats and assumed many different roles in the theatre. First the role of a student and then teacher at Alma College learning Meisner under Joe Jezewski. He then he became the Technical Director, Set Designer and Production Manager for What A Do Theatre, working on many shows during his four years there including 1984 (2015 Wilde Award Nominee for Best Drama), The Tempest (2014 Wilde Awards winner best Choreography, nominee Best of the Bard), Next To Normal (2013 Wilde Award Nominee Best Musical, Winner Best Lighting Design). He has most recently been working on productions at a whole new level through Site Operations and Production for some of the countries biggest music festivals (Outsidelands, TomorrowWorld, Electric Forest).
(Beat) began with some passionate and single minded friends bent on changing the world and their craft. They were too young and naive to know what they set out to do was impossible. Josh is very glad that his friends are still too naive to see the impossible or at least too stubborn to accept defeat.
"we the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing." - Konstantin Jirecek
He gladly charges with his close friends into the unknown towards to impossible.
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” - Jack Kerouac
