If you're a theatre major, chances are all your classes are in the same building, and all the work you do is in the theater. We're oftentimes "stuck" here - spending the breaks of our days in the green room or design studios, doing homework, reading, designing. When I get the chance to work or do something outside of my confined space, I take it. (more...)

University of Kentucky Presents THAT INSPIRED HARPER LEEUniversity of Kentucky Presents THAT INSPIRED HARPER LEE
by BWW News Desk - October 27, 2016

Long before Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys took center stage in the hearts of young readers as the iconic teen detectives, Seckatary Hawkins and his gang of "Fair and Square" boys were solving mysteries and stopping crimes along the riverbanks of the Ohio River. Beginning in 1918, the members of the Fair and Square Club captured the imagination of thousands of children and adults alike, as they explore the diverse Kentucky landscape in pursuit of adventure, mystery, and doing good. For over three decades, Schulkers' creation provided inspiration to many young readers, including Harper Lee, who references his work in her iconic novel To Kill a Mockingbird. (more...)

BWW Blog: Keanna Irving - Freedom to FailBWW Blog: Keanna Irving - Freedom to Fail
by Guest Blogger: Keanna Irving - October 26, 2016

On News Year's Eve of seventh grade, I made the resolution to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. Little did I know as a twelve year old that this would lead me down an exciting path towards an outgoing, theatrical me! I began to make the conscious choices that would push me out of my little bubble. Before long I was doing theatre and learning new styles of dance. By the end of senior year, I figured I would continue to step out of my comfort zone and move from little Boise, Idaho all the way to New York City for school. That is when I learned that I had a flaw in my mentality, as I soon discovered that life was not just about being willing to try new things, but about having the courage to fail. (more...)

BWW Blog: Kellie Williams - My Top 5 Favorite Songs From Crazy Ex-GirlfriendBWW Blog: Kellie Williams - My Top 5 Favorite Songs From Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
by Guest Blogger: Kellie Williams - October 20, 2016

I binge-watched the entire first season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend last month because I'd been hearing good things about it for a while and finally decided to see it for myself. It absolutely lives up to the hype-it's unlike anything I've ever seen on TV. The brainchild of Rachel Bloom follows a big-shot New York lawyer (played by Bloom) as she moves across the country on a whim to be with her high school boyfriend whom she hasn't spoken to in more than ten years. You can imagine the chaos that ensues. The show is a theater kid's dream. Each episode is like a mini-musical. The songs are amazing, the dialogue and storylines are hilarious, and the characters are, like every day people, flawed but lovable. In honor of Season 2's upcoming premiere, I thought I'd share my top five favorite songs so far (in no particular order): (more...)
BWW Blog: Monica Furman - Spotlight on Chapman Alum LeeAnn DowdBWW Blog: Monica Furman - Spotlight on Chapman Alum LeeAnn Dowd
by Guest Blogger: Monica Furman - October 20, 2016

This week has been a lot of schoolwork and rehearsals (the usual). So, I decided to interview one of my favorite humans who happens to also be in the theatre. LeeAnn Dowd was the first Chapman person I met; it was during the summer before my freshman year in NYC while she was interning. We instantly hit it off and she even came to one of our shows! During my freshman year I looked at LeeAnn, a senior at the time, as a role model; she started Cross the Line with another senior, Sierra Stenzel, the club that I'm leading now. Our outlook on theatre was very similar. We also went on to do ASTEP's Artist as Citizen Conference together, which was an incredible experience for us to share. Even though LeeAnn has graduated and moved to San Francisco, we still keep in touch and she graciously let me interview her for the blog. Hope you enjoy getting to know a recent post-grad perspective! (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - October 20, 2016

This semester, I am taking a Writing for TV and Film class - which means that I'm writing a script for a movie. I tossed around different ideas, as did every student in the class, and we tried to find the simplest idea and most interesting idea in which to write our very first script. Anna, our professor, told us to think about things we know, because those are going to be easiest to write about. I couldn't write about the life of a congressman, because I don't know anything about that. I don't know any congressmen. I don't know what they do, and even if I did a lot of research, I probably still couldn't get the dialogue just right, or the lingo. So I bet you can guess what I chose to write about. (more...)

A staged concert reading of Temple is happening at the Wharton Center on Michigan State University's campus this weekend and there is going be a very special sensory-friendly performance included.

'It's a huge population of people who often don't feel welcome in our environment of live theatre and we are looking to change that. Our sensory-friendly performance is specially geared toward audiences who are on the spectrum and others who have sensory sensitivities and needs.' (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - October 14, 2016

Very recently, I drove from Auburn to Atlanta to see one of my favorite bands at The Tabernacle - Two Door Cinema Club - and not only did I end up falling in love with them even more, but I also fell in love with Jack Garratt, who was opening for them. My friend Josh and I went together, because neither of us know anybody in Auburn who likes the same music we do - but I ended up seeing my friend and fellow sound designer, Carl, there also!  (more...)
