Hey guys! My name is Carly Galbreth, and I'm a rising sophomore at Wake Forest University. I'm double majoring in Theatre (BA) and Politics & International Affairs. Currently, I'm an electrics intern at a summer stock theater in New Hampshire. I love everything about theatre, and it is definitely going to be involved in my life forever. I'm so excited to share my experiences with the BroadwayWorld community!

First Show:

Aladdin (original cast!)

Favorite Show:

I have so many favorite shows, but my top two are Moulin Rouge and Come From Away. I saw both during high school, and they were very influential in my performing and view of theatre. Obviously, both have incredible soundtracks.

Favorite Stories:

  • The Power of 'Yes' - This article is a reflection on my freshman year of college. I think it's really important to reflect at the end of each year and see what went well and what didn't. In this case, I discovered that what seemed like a major setback at the time actually became my biggest blessing. I want to share this story with others to show that "failures" aren't always what they appear to be. Often, they're just redirections!

College opens many opportunities. Some of them are enriching, like performances and internships. Others, like cheating and using artificial intelligence, can jeopardize learning. The fear of punishment from professors and the university are threatening, but my greatest motivation against cheating is my desire to be prepared after graduation.

No one warns you about how difficult finals are in college (or at least I wasn't warned). Not only are they academically challenging, but the end of the year approaches, all you want to do is spend time with your friends and enjoy the sunny weather. Here's my official warning to you, as well as some advice on how you will make it to the other side!

I obviously learn a lot about theatre from my theatre and music classes, but I’ve discovered the greatest beauty of a liberal arts education are the unexpected moments in which I experience theatre outside of the arts building. These experiences are helping me realize how applicable theatre is in all aspects of life. People are quick to criticize artistic and performance degrees, saying they produce false hopes that result in unemployment. However, I know my theatre degree will be relevant forever, even if I don’t pursue performing.

Juggling classes, rehearsals, work, and friendships can be very difficult in college, especially as a theatre major. This semester, I’m taking two theatre classes, two politics classes, two voice lessons, and I’m singing in choir. In addition to the time I spend physically in classes, each demands significant work outside of class. Over the past semester, I’ve developed a few tools that help me prioritize all of my responsibilities that I want to share.
