BWW Blog: Live Theatre Isn't Just Fun; It's a NecessityBWW Blog: Live Theatre Isn't Just Fun; It's a Necessity
by Student Blogger: Becca Jones - April 1, 2019

Hi again everyone! It's great to be back writing another blog for BroadwayWorld! I've been busy writing reaction papers for my History of Broadway class and my Acting I class, and it got me thinking. Both of those papers required me to go see a show- whether it be on Broadway, Off-Broadway, or even just a local theatre- and write a reaction paper on what I saw. That got me thinking about how important seeing live theatre is, and not just for academic classes, but for life in general. (more...)
BWW Blog: Social Justice SeasonBWW Blog: Social Justice Season
by Student Blogger: Sarah Tossman - March 29, 2019

Hello again, BroadwayWorld! As theatre artists, we have the ability to touch our audiences, to take a stand and to make a statement. Honestly, in times like these, it really feels more like our duty. A lot of people are really scared, or angry, or frustrated, and while theatre cannot fix everything single-handedly (as awesome as that would be), it can at least help people feel better and bring more awareness to important issues.

by Student Blogger: Olivia Taylor - March 27, 2019

This past week, my school's theatre department attended the United States Institute of Theatre Technology (USITT) 2019 Conference & Stage Expo in Louisville, Kentucky. At the yearly conference, theatre professionals and students spend several days attending panels, presentations, and workshops on all aspects of technical theatre. This was my first year attending the conference, and I left with new ideas about what can be done in the world of theatre production. (more...)

by Student Blogger: John Katz - March 25, 2019

In a business that focuses heavily on spectacle for its commercial success, it makes sense that musical theater programs across the country train students to simply kick high and sing loud. But what happens to those aspiring artists who want to delve deeper into the artform? Where do they go to train? How do they develop their skills? The answer is simple: The Conservatory of Theater Arts at Webster University (more...)

by Student Blogger: Sarah Tossman - March 22, 2019

Hello, Broadway World, and welcome to my first blog! My name is Sarah, and I am very excited to begin sharing my thoughts with you. Theatre has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember -- one of my earliest memories is sitting in the lobby of a local dinner theatre during the intermission of Wizard of Oz, watching them roll into place a giant mechanical structure for the actor playing the Wizard to stand in. I didn't know it then, but by high school, I realized that no matter how my future turned out, theatre had to be a part of it. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Michael Gribble - March 21, 2019

Hey Broadway World! My name is Michael Gribble, and I'm not technically a theatre student! I am a sophomore Film Production major and Film Music minor at Chapman University in Orange, California. I've wanted to make movies since I was eight, and I'm thrilled to be learning by doing at Chapman's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. It wasn't until about three years ago that I realized I want to work in theatre as well, and subsequently began writing and composing for theatre. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Becca Jones - March 20, 2019

Hi everyone! I'm so glad to be back for another week of writing for Broadway World! This week I'm talking about the ways social media has impacted modern theatre and the experiences surrounding it. Social media has made shows more accessible, more popular with younger audiences, and in some cases, social media has even brought shows from little regional theatres all the way to Broadway itself.

by Student Blogger: Kelsie Davis - March 19, 2019

The end of a show holds the usual post-show depression. The end of The Pirates of Penzance was a little more bittersweet than usual. I was so excited to see this show up and running onstage. Each night the numbers got better, and the comedy became a little more intentional. Seeing my choreography on stage and getting positive feedback for it was incredible. I have never been so proud of something before, which seems fitting for it being my last production at Olivet Nazarene University. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Seth Jerabek - March 7, 2019

You did it. After four long years of sitting in greasy desks that are too small for you, you finally graduated high school. The well awaited promise of college is even closer than it has ever been before. And to make things even better, you found a school that fits all of your needs and wants, and you wholeheartedly believe that you are going to become the person you were always meant to be. But, what if college isn't all that you expected it to be? What if instead of being filled with passionate, like-minded learners, you feel like you are alone and no one truly understands you?

by Student Blogger: Laken Burkhardt - March 4, 2019

When you are a college student, sometimes you get the opportunity to work professional events that may come through your theatre on campus. I recently got the experience of working my first union gig for a national touring company that came through my town, and working on that type of theatre is much different than working a normal college show. I felt like a small kid learning all kinds of new information - impressed and terrified at the same time. (more...)

Hello everybody! I'm glad to be back writing to you all about another week and another topic! The program I am studying in here at Catholic University is part of the Rome School of Music, Drama, and Art. The Drama program is an all-encompassing major that includes studies in all areas of theatre. These areas include: script analysis, acting, directing, technical theatre, design, etc. One of the most rewarding parts of our Theatre Topics class, I believe, are the reading and discussion of a wide variety of plays.

by Student Blogger: Kelsie Davis - February 27, 2019

Preparing for a major project, such as choreographing a musical, seemed very intimidating at first. Even as I wrote the choreography there were moments that I wasn't sure if the approach that I was taking was going to work for the show. I had a basic concept for the production: it was supposed to appear as a cartoon. Not physically, but characteristically, the bodies on stage were supposed to seem like they were from another world.
