Student Blog: Do You Hear the People Sing? They're Singing, and You Can Too
April 28, 2021

There has been a lot going on in the theatre world these past few weeks, to say the least. I know something that I have been thinking about lately is: what are some things that I can personally do right now to help and participate in this movement? Here are just a few answers.

Student Blog: Some of My Gender-Bent Dream Castings!
April 9, 2021

Gender may not be real, but I’d like to see these non-traditional castings become real! I am a big fan of MCC’s Miscast gala. I watch the performances every year and daydream about what I would sing, if I was ever so lucky to be a part of it. Because Miscast is a little over a month away, I have come up with some “miscast” castings of my own! I have cast women in roles traditionally played by men, and vice versa!

I do not think it’s necessary to harm yourself in order to create something meaningful..I am incredibly fortunate to be in a program with teachers I love and admire so much. The acting teachers I have had thus far in my time at ETW have been incredibly emphatic and supportive. I think they have effectively created safe spaces for their students.
