by Student Blogger: Alison Bauza - February 21, 2018

Hi, everyone! I hope you all are doing well so far this season. It is officially the end of Theatre Week here in Chicago. This 10 day period provides a big amount of discounts and opportunity for everyone to see several shows in the city. That being said, an issue that has been quite a huge part of my education and experience this current school year that I would love to see discussed more is accessibility services in theatre.

by Student Blogger: Tyler Klingbiel - February 15, 2018

Trying to get your acting career started can be one of the most physically and mentally draining tasks that burns out so many actors before they get their "big break." Especially if you are starting out with a resume with some college credits, and maybe some high school shows as well. (more...)


BWW Blog: Thank You GrandmaBWW Blog: Thank You Grandma
by Student Blogger: Courtney Buzzell - February 14, 2018

Often times people reflect on those who helped inspired them. The people who helped shaped that way they are today. This school year I've done plenty of hands on crafts with my classes, which made me reminisce about how my grandmother was the jack of all trades. She's the reason why I'm where I am today.

BWW Blog: Why Ballet Essential Ballet Training for a Musical Theatre StudentBWW Blog: Why Ballet Essential Ballet Training for a Musical Theatre Student
by Student Blogger: Jenna Napolitano - February 14, 2018

It is a widely known fact that ballet is the hardest style of dance to train in, and requires the use of muscles that the average person would not even know existed. The isolation of different body parts to properly execute ballet combinations is extremely difficult to mentally understand, let alone physically do, evidently making it a very stressful art form. Despite ballet being a nearly impossible art form to perfect, it is the ground foundation of any style of dance and sculpts your body into its best form, essential for any performer of any facet.

BWW Blog: Finding Outside Inspiration While Inside your HeadBWW Blog: Finding Outside Inspiration While Inside your Head
by Student Blogger: Jenna Napolitano - February 09, 2018

Being in such a concentrated environment as a conservatory program (not to mention in a city school), it is nearly impossible to escape the pressures and emotions that come with being a musical theatre or dance major. If you're not in class you're at an audition or a rehearsal, you're at home practicing a scene for class or watching a documentary on theatre history. No matter what you're doing, it somehow relates to the career path you've chosen. And sometimes it's more than enough, and you feel you want to drop this crazy career completely and get a "normal" job. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Ashlyn Elliott - February 07, 2018

The everyday grind of a theatre conservatory, and life beyond that, can be so weighing. To a degree, most everything we do is considered fabulous or not so hot by whoever is our audience that day. In a society that is based so heavily on other's harsh opinions, it is imperative that we exercise our personal validation daily. This means celebrating. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Alison Bauza - January 29, 2018

Hi, friends! My name is Alison and I am a senior at Columbia College Chicago, majoring in Live & Performing Arts Management and minoring in Public Relations. I am a student in the Business & Entrepreneurship department, therefore, none of my classes are a part of the Theatre department, even though my career goal is focused in producing for theatre. This being said, I'm always wondering, "How can I get more involved with the theatre department and how can I make friends that share the same interests as I do?" There are many solutions to this question. (more...)
