BWW Student Blogs: Logan Explores Disney WorldBWW Student Blogs: Logan Explores Disney World
by Logan Baker - January 30, 2015

It's hard to believe that I've officially been living in Orlando, Florida, working in Disney World for two and a half weeks. I am just now writing about my first few weeks in Disney because when a college student participates in the Disney College Program (DCP) they barely have time to breathe. Don't think I hate being busy, because I absolutely love it. I just did not realize that everything keeps moving when in Walt Disney World. (more...)

by Jeffrey Ellis - January 27, 2015

As hard as it may be to fathom, the calendar indicates we're practically to February already and 2015 is off and running like some out-of-control roller coaster. Perhaps no one is more acutely aware of this than Emily Hughes, an acting major at Nashville's Lipscomb University, who no sooner than she had her bags unpacked from Christmas break that she was already hard at work on her next assignment: playing Mayzie LaBird in Seussical the Musical, which runs February 13-22 at Collins Alumni Auditorium.

by Jeffrey Ellis - January 20, 2015

One of Nashville's favorite young actors is quickly growing up. As a teenager, he was onstage for countless area theater companies, but now he's known as James Spencer Dean and he's pursuing his bachelor of fine arts degree in musical theater at The Boston Conservatory. Who'd have thought that Spencer Dean, who delighted audiences in numerous Act Too productions and was a 2012 First Night Most Promising Actor, would now be known as "James Spencer Dean" and wowing audiences in the northeast just as did back home?

by Logan Baker - January 8, 2015

Walt Disney once said, 'I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing-that it was all started by a mouse.' Believe me when I say I remember, Walt, and I am thanking you now more than ever for creating such an iconic character. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd be a twenty year old, in college, majoring in musical theatre, and planning a five month trip to Walt Disney World. Yet, here I am, writing about the initial steps of applying to the Disney College Program; furthermore, I write to describe the four month process of applying to accepting to preparing to packing.

BWW Reviews: GSU's ALMOST, MAINE: That Time Absurdity and Hooligans Didn't Ruin a ShowBWW Reviews: GSU's ALMOST, MAINE: That Time Absurdity and Hooligans Didn't Ruin a Show
by Sally Henry - October 19, 2014

During Georgia Southern University's one-act production of John Cariani's ALMOST, MAINE, the most frequent question I asked myself was first, 'Why did those hooligans on the front row come to see this show?' and second, 'Is that a new character?' Student shows of course come with student patrons, but unruly ones have great potential to ruin a production- and these distracting young people very nearly did. And I must say that in a show full of short vignettes, concentration was vital. Thus from a 'kids these days' approach did I view this play, wishing I had brought a cane to wave in frustration.

by BWW News Desk - May 6, 2013

There are a few things I have learned about the UMass theatre department this semester. One, they love using the aisles of the theatre to make entrances and exits, two they are extremely fond of nudity (no matter the show), and finally they love modernizing stories. These things are what make me love all of the shows I have seen this semester, and Casanova by Constance Congdon was no exception. (more...)
