Student Blog: Get Comfortable With Being UncomfortableStudent Blog: Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

Student Blogger: Breanna Ebisch

Excerpt: I'm not one to go to events or trips by myself mostly because that's out of my comfort zone and I've gotten used to doing things with my friends or family. So when the opportunity came up to go to a minor league baseball game, but no one I knew could go, I was faced with the question of do I miss out on something I want to do because of my comfort level or do I step out of where I feel 'safe' and go?

Student Blog: Choppie's Rating SystemStudent Blog: Choppie's Rating System

Student Blogger: Caiti Ho

Excerpt: I think we can all agree that whenever there is an announcement of a new adaptation, we all have our criticisms of the adaptation and hopes for the production. I have created a full proof rating system for all adaptations because it allows me to focus my irritation into purposeful and realistic cons of an adaptation.

Student Blog: How to Get Over Your Inferiority Complex in the Rehearsal SpaceStudent Blog: How to Get Over Your Inferiority Complex in the Rehearsal Space

Student Blogger: Meredith Muirhead

Excerpt: As actors, we're always fighting the urge to compare ourselves to our fellow performers, whether we mean to or not. It's just instinctive- all human beings naturally compare themselves to others because that's what society has always driven us to do. An actor's first rehearsal for a show is the time where the comparative thoughts manifest themselves just as much as they do in a callback or audition room, because we're looking around at our fellow cast members and thinking, "Wow, I'm nowhere near as good as this person and that one," or "I don't know why I'm here. Everyone fits their role so perfectly and I'm still struggling." This thought process, unfortunately, is not so much an example of humility as much as it is a drawback in the rehearsal space.

Student Blog: Back to BroadwayStudent Blog: Back to Broadway

Student Blogger: Paige Rosko

Excerpt: While we were squished on top of each other, as is normal in a theater, I did not see anyone who was not wearing a mask. Everyone seemed to be following the rules and no one made a big fuss about having to wear a mask. Before being let into the theater, every audience member had to show a staff member their vaccination card and photo ID. While this did slow down the process of getting everyone into the theater, it was worth it. I have seen a few live, outdoor shows since the beginning of the pandemic and I do still feel more comfortable seeing a show outside, but I'm not opposed to seeing shows inside.
