Student Blog: Not a Goodbye, But an 'I'll See You Later'

May 25, 2021

As soon as tickets for various productions went on sale, I penciled in a few shows that I'm especially excited to see. Whether it's a new production that's yet to be put on stage, or a Broadway staple, I'm ready to splurge on at least a few of these shows in the near future.

Student Blog: A Very Theatrical Graduation Playlist
May 19, 2021

I just finished all of my classes and finals for my degree! Currently, the emotions I'm feeling are all over the place, and I know that music only helps me contextualize said emotions. Therefore, I decided that making a playlist would not only help set the mood of starting a new chapter, but also make for a good blog post.

Student Blog: One Size Does Not Fit All
May 6, 2021

Student Blog: Just Another Minute: An All-New Musical Celebrating Connection in An All-Virtual World
March 25, 2021

Orson Welles once said that 'the enemy of art is the absence of limitations.' Creators of theatre, such as University of Delaware music students Tara O'Connor and Liz Vex, have proved this to be as true as ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Student Blog: Learning to Juggle
March 11, 2021

My final school supply list as a college student consisted of just two things: a book co-authored by the Dalai Lama and a pack of three Speevers juggling balls - complete with a carry case for convenient access! While I knew the book was for spiritual guidance (as I’m also taking a course aptly titled “The Art of Happiness”), I was skeptical

Theatre will be back soon, but in a whole new way. In the meantime, it sounds cliche, but I miss the little things the most. Here are ten of the most specific things about doing live theatre that I miss (as well as ten that… maybe not).
