Carol Burnett

Fourteen Point Park University sports, arts and entertainment management students met award-winning, renowned actress and comedian Carol Burnett while working as mic handlers at her Heinz Hall show May 6 in Pittsburgh.  

Keely Sapienza, a senior SAEM major from Woodland Hills High School in Pittsburgh, was one of the students who worked at the show.

“When Professor Traversari presented this opportunity, I could not pass it up! I grew up watching Carol Burnett with my parents and having the chance to work with her filled me with such excitement,” Sapienza said. 

She added: “People cried and laughed, all because they adore Carol Burnett. My favorite part would have to be when we got to rehearse with Carol. In job opportunities like this, you really learn professionalism and how to work with the audience so that they can feel that personal connection with Carol. The SAEM program never fails to give us these amazing experiences, memories and opportunities. I will hold onto each one forever."
