Ann Ethington is an Arizona actor who graduated from Arizona State University with her bachelors degree in theatre with a concentration in acting. Growing up, she has been performing on stage in different capacities since she was five years old, mostly focused on various forms of dance, such as tap dance, hip hop, jazz, ballet, modern and contemporary. Her experience with her high school marching band's color guard has given her a unique capability of dancing with props and objects like rifles, sabers, and flags.
After high school Ann began focusing her time and effort into her acting, beginning with multiple local film makers such as LooKitt Productions and Lemonade Acre for different productions, including the award winning one take short film Dead West and Theo's Blues. She has been cast in multiple leading roles on stage for theatre, her favorite being her role of Catherine in a production of Pippin.
During her time as an ASU theatre student, Ann learned about many different acting tools the University has to offer. She was the Vice President of ASU's chapter of The National Honor Theatre Society, Alpha Psi Omega: Delta Lambda. Ann is experienced in multiple different forms of theatre and acting, such as Meisner technique, movement and body work, voice work, rasa/rasaboxes, immersive theatre, devising theatre, experimental theatre, mime work, and screen acting. Her student career aligned with the COVID-19 pandemic, which provided a lot of unique and difficult experiences in discovering how to work and perform in socially distanced virtual theatre, performing in this format for two different virtual ASU Herberger Institute's School of Music, Dance, and Theatre productions, before returning to the stage in a production of Liz Lerman's original work Healing Wars
In her final semester before graduation, Ann was involved in multiple senior film projects, as well as her own senior capstone project, which is a devised theatre short play. Her goal of this work is gather and utilize real stories of outrageous customer service experiences from people who work in the industry, and use them in an artistic way to help raise awareness about the largely overlooked and unseen injustices of customer services workers. Despite all of the road blocks Ann faced over her time at ASU, she still graduated Cum Laude on May of 2022.
