Bill Auld, associate professor of Theatre at Kent State Tuscarawas, leant his flying skills to MTV's "My Super Sweet 16" this past spring to help twin recording artists SiAngie make an epic entrance to their 16th birthday party.

Auld flew to Philadelphia where he was responsible for flying the twin sisters in on two LED-lit "clouds" as they made their entrance into their lavish Sweet 16 party. The party was documented as part of MTV's hit show "My Super Sweet 16," which showcases ultra-lavish 16th birthday parties.
