BWW Blog: I Can't, I Have RehearsalBWW Blog: I Can't, I Have Rehearsal
by Student Blogger: Kate Klika - November 23, 2018

Every person who has done theater can relate to the feeling of having to say "I'm sorry, I'm busy, I have rehearsal!" or "I can't, I have a show." While musical theater can have extreme demands on your time in your life before college, once you are pursuing it as a major it can feel like that is all your life is, especially if you attend a conservatory or a conservatory style program.

by Student Blogger: Kristen Kelly - November 21, 2018

Hi guys! Welcome back to my final rundown of Broadway Talks Back for the year. We were so lucky to host Catherine Charlebois this past weekend! She is best known for playing Nessarose in Wicked on Broadway and on tour. Catherine is originally from the Charlottesville area, so she was visiting town to see her family while spending some time with us as well. It was also the 1-year anniversary of our first Broadway Talks Back event, which featured Waitress star Drew Gehling! (more...)

by Student Blogger: Selena Newton - November 21, 2018

I just registered for my upper sophomore classes. I didn't realize how fast everything is going! I remember being a senior in high school and applying to all the schools I had on my list. Pace was my top choice and now I'm almost halfway through with my college career. The time goes by really fast. If you're in New York City for any of the holiday festivities or if you're just here doing tourist things, come visit Pace and see if the school is right for you! (more...)

by Student Blogger: Joshua Wiggins - November 20, 2018

Majoring in theatre at your university is a balancing act. It's similar to being a juggler while walking on a tightrope; you're trying to keep so much in the air without dropping anything, meanwhile you're trying to not fall on the ground. You, a singular person, are asked to be an academic, full time artist, being yourself whatever what entails (social life, gym rat, video game fanatic, etc….), and you might be working or interning somewhere (more...)

by Student Blog: Christopher Lindquist - November 19, 2018

Wherever you go for college, you are always going to face obstacles. This statement is a given. You will always have a midterm that you are trying to cram some final study time for, or a paper that you forgot was due so you have to write it the day before. You have to figure out when and where to grab food between classes, and not to mention the struggle to find cheap textbooks that aren't destroyed. This is the same situation for a student at a community college. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Madeline Oldham - November 19, 2018

As Drama majors, we are constantly looking ahead towards our professional futures. Every holiday has at least one cynical relative asking, "What are we going to do in the real world?" and, "When are we going to be on Broadway?" Whether that voice is from a family member or in your own head, we always seem to be clouded with thoughts of resumes and in search of a volunteer or performance opportunity to diversify our credits.

by Student Blogger: Diana Witt - November 15, 2018

Throughout my theatre, music, and dance training, I have constantly had to adapt to new teachers and their own unique styles. While it can be quite a challenge, it is a useful exercise in adaptability, a transferrable skill for the professional world. Viewing your work through different lenses gives greater perspective on the art. (more...)

When making the decision to major in musical theatre (or any artistic area) in college, the range of responses from friends, family, and even people you may not know very well can range in terms of support. (more...)

by Student Blogger: Samantha Hansen - November 14, 2018

As a theatre major, your weeks are pretty unique from one to the next. Besides classes, there are rehearsals, performances, production work, and college life in general with which to be concerned. Sometimes, those things overlap and the week gets hectic. But what might it look like to be a sophomore directing major? (more...)

by Student Blogger: Selena Newton - November 14, 2018

One of the perks of going to Pace University is discount Broadway tickets. For each month of the semester, there is a show offered for $30. For November, the show was The Prom. It's a great for students that are new to the city since they're able to experience a show at an affordable price. I go see shows as much as I can, so I'm grateful Pace is able to offer us discounted tickets. (more...)

It's that time of year when every high school senior and aspiring transfer student is making their final decisions about where to apply. Choosing a college can be a daunting process and it can be very difficult to know if you are making the right choice, so here are some things I've learned along the way and how I ultimately picked my school.

by Student Blogger: Samantha Hansen - November 9, 2018

Finishing up my first semester of college, I was ready for winter break and to get home to my dogs. I had just completed my first final for the day when the professor asked me to stay behind for a minute to talk to me. Cue racing heart and sweaty palms. I could barely register what he was saying because I could hear my heartbeat in my ears, but I managed to interpret, "Would you like to stage manage my show?" Since I thought I heard wrong, I repeated the question back to him. "Yes," was his response. "You mean These Shining Lives," I asked. "That's the one." (more...)

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog where I bring Broadway to UVA! This week is an off week for Broadway Talks Back, but we have some amazing events coming up the next two weekends! I've gotten a lot of questions about why I love Waitress the Musical lately, and I think this is the perfect forum to explain my love for the show. (more...)
BWW Blog: Silent Judgement- An Honest Analysis on Good Audience EtiquetteBWW Blog: Silent Judgement- An Honest Analysis on Good Audience Etiquette
by Student Blogger: Madeline Oldham - November 9, 2018

There seems to be a trend amongst drama students and performers of any age in having difficulties being a good audience member. The leafing through of the Playbill becomes an arena for snobbish comments about past credits and how he/she, for one reason or another, are fit for a different role in a different play. (more...)

Lin-Manuel Miranda has certainly become a household name over the past few years. Garnering countless accolades for his work as a composer, writer, and performer, Miranda is not only one of my biggest inspirations, but a genius innovator in the theatre community. (more...)

by Student Blogger: JuJu Jaworski - November 8, 2018

There is nothing like originating a role. Having no basis behind your new persona to adapt to. Walking onstage every night as a character the world has never seen before - inevitably, portraying a vulnerable piece of you onstage. This is what it is like performing original work in theatre.

by Student Blogger: Kate Klika - November 7, 2018

Hi Broadway World! Following up last week's post about college auditions, this week I wanted to share about college itself. Musical theater programs abound in the U.S. and I obviously cannot speak for any program but the one I am currently in, but most schools have at least the same basic structure in terms of what is taught. Today, I'll be sharing the details of life at a musical theater freshman at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee in Boston, MA! (more...)

by Student Blogger: Selena Newton - November 7, 2018

The 2018-2019 Broadway season is well underway. New shows have opened this fall while others will find their new home in the spring. Out of the revivals and works based on something already existing, where does original work stand? Most shows coming to Broadway are jukebox shows, revivals, or based on a movie, a novel etc. I was thinking of why I felt overwhelmed by the lack of originality I see. (more...)

Hello all! My name is Hayley Martini and I am so stoked to be a new student blogger here in Broadway World! I am a sophomore musical theater major at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Ever since then my love for musicals has blossomed and I am so excited for what the future holds. (more...)
