Picciuto describes her top skills as using Photoshop, upholstery and period knowledge. She served as the props master for Clybourne Park and Seussical, as well as assistant props master for Mack and Mabel. As the title of her degree implies, she has worked on more than just props during her time at CCM. She was the scenic designer for Dinner at Eight, as well as the assistant scenic designer for Jesus Christ Superstar, Hamlet, The Government Inspector and Very Dumb Kids. Additionally, Picciuto served as the production designer for Phantom Limbs, a short film directed by CCM Acting student Lucas Prizant.
CCM Associate Professor of Scenic Design Mark Halpin has been instrumental in Picciuto’s success with these forays beyond props design.
“After taking my CAD drafting class last fall, I felt that I needed more practice in drafting for scenic design and props specifically. Professor Halpin created a Special Topics class for me to have experience drafting complicated props-based projects. That has ended up being one of the most helpful classes I've taken,” Picciuto says.
