Delaney joined the Civic staff in 2018 as the Master Electrician. She earned her BS in Theater: Design and Technology at Northwest Missouri State University and a MFA in Theater at Southern Illinois University where she specialized in Lighting Design. She has worked with the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, Endstation Theater Company, McLeod Summer Playhouse, and two years as the Lead Lighting Technician at Interlochen. Delaney had the pleasure of being Assistant Lighting Designer and Programmer for James Moody on Tartuffe at Southern Illinois University in 2016. Mr. Moody is the author of 'Concert Lighting: Techniques, Art, and Business', and an alumnus of SIU. She is also proud of her half-scale recreation of an 18th century sack-back gown. It had absolutely nothing to do with her career path but Delaney is extremely proud of it! Outside of the theatre, Delaney is a painter in her spare time, spending hours in her studio creating abstract art while listening to show tunes or Top Gear episodes. She also enjoys making jewelry (evolved from her time making costuming chainmail) and is learning to play guitar.
