AMANDA GILLIES loves the treasure hunt, creativity and making something out of nothing involved in her craft. For 35+ years as stage manager, scenic carpenter, and prop master, she has always said if you saw her on stage something was going wrong! She loves working with the wonderful people at Candlelight but be careful if you invite her to your house – she’ll probably ask to borrow something.
