My name Rebecca Parr.
My career has been in opera and theatre production. I worked 19 years as a stage manager with Knoxville Opera, and have worked the last 11 years as the production manager for UT School of Music Opera Theatre. I have been a proud member of our local stagehand union, IATSE 197 before devoting my time to help raise my great nephew and provide support for my family.
I serve on the board of Community Action Committee as a representative for the Head Start Policy Council (Chairperson), and am in the 2017 CAC Community Leadership class. I also serve on the board of Marble City Opera, and in the past have served on the boards of Dismas House, Community Shares as a representative of Save Our Cumberland Mountains, and the Flenniken Landing Liaison Committee.
I have lived in Knoxville over 35 years and have been a resident of South Knoxville for over 30 years. I purchased my home in the Vestal community in 2006.
I live with my great nephew Wyatt, who will be entering kindergarten in the fall. My niece and her baby live in my basement apartment, because I believe family is the most important treasure we have and loving support is the greatest gift we have to give.
