“My job enhances the performance and allows me to express myself through painting a stage with the sliders on a light board. Although my role in this creative process is different that acting, singing, or dancing, it gives me an outlet to express myself.”
“Theater brings you out of your comfort zone and causes you to look in the mirror. Working in lighting has caused me to have to think on my feet, work fast but diligent and be creative.”
“Because of participating in acting classes and productions, I have gained the confidence and leadership skills that have helped me attain work, book performances, and advocate for myself and my beliefs.”
“My experiences have illustrated to me how profoundly theatre can impact people‚Äôs lives. It is for that very reason that I love it so much and want to continue being a part of it for the rest of my life.”
“Actors get to step out of their bodies and have experiences they would never feel in the real world. They get to fall in love multiple times, they get to experience loss or heartbreak and learn how to deal with it, they get to go on adventures, all in the space of the stage.”
“There’s nothing like the personal connection you build with your castmates onstage or
your fellow students in a theater class. Theater brings people together because it requires so
much trust and teamwork to perform together or even alone. After working with a group of other
actors you become family and share a unique bond with each other.”
