BWW Blog: Christopher Panella - An Ode to Summer: Don't Stop, Keep Moving 
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Panella - May 5, 2016

?Your craft is only good with continuity over time. - Me. just now. But seriously, continuity is important, especially when it comes to theatre and the arts. As actors, we grow with every performance, every note, line, and count a step building stairs that only go up. In theatre news, there is never an actor who talks about not pushing themselves for years to be their best before getting their big break. Big breaks come with practice and dedication, not sheer luck and ability. For high school students, theatre can seem like a school year activity, summers spent relaxing. I mean, I get it: high school is the high note and the summer is the needed catch breath. Yet, this industry and profession finds itself with more of a willing supply than demand. For this reason actors need to, more than ever, develop their craft to be the best it can be any chance they get, especially high school actors.  (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Katy Fraggos - May 24, 2016

Almost everyone has that one day where they say to themselves, "That's it. I have to get back in shape." (Or at least something to that extent.) So, you know you need to get back into shape.
