BWW Blog: A Contingency Plan
July 27, 2020

As students prepare for next semester, bountiful questions remain. Will everyone actually return to campus? How can theatre-makers create art while staying safe? Is it worth going back to school, only to return home in a few weeks?

July 9, 2020

When one thinks of jobs on Broadway, the first career that often comes to mind is actor, or maybe director or designer. However, each and every Broadway show has about 200 to 400 people working on it at any given time.

BWW Blog: Get Noticed by Cold Emailing

As artists, we are in charge of our own career destinies and as such, sometimes one has to pound the pavement in order to advance in the industry. Any good business person uses the cold call to his or her advantage.

BWW Blog: Gift of Time - Part 3
May 19, 2020

Most of us were expecting this gift of time to be mere weeks, and now the summer plans we've spent all quarantine dreaming about may not be happening.

Theatre as an art is inherently collaborative. It takes a team. What happens when we are separated from our ensemble? How can we continue to create in isolation?

We often have little control over the big picture: such as being cast as a role in a musical or asked to design the set for a specific play.

The times that I should be up in front of the class performing or directing children in a TYA scene, I am now spending staring at my computer screen. I want to be doing things, not simply discussing doing things. I find myself grieving: Grieving the missed opportunities, grieving my lack of control, grieving the loss of my immediate and intimate community at Samford University.
