Are you a Theatre Scholarship Holder? 

Yes. The William Webb Memorial Scholarship.


Why did you choose Rollins?

I have always felt that Rollins has a great sense of community. I knew I could make an impact here and that was important to me.


When did you first become interested in the theatre?

I was exposed to the Chicago theatre scene from a very young age, but only ended up truly pursuing stage management in high school.


On an emotional or intellectual level, what will you take with you when you graduate? 

I will always be grateful to the theatre department, as it has afforded me the most beautiful memories and friendships.


What are you currently working on within the department?  (this could be a class project, a production, an audition piece, etc...)

I am currently stage managing The PIllowman in the Fred Stone Theatre. In October, I’ll begin working in the costume studio for Little Shop of Horrors.


What outside activities are you involved with? (campus clubs, work studies, etc...)

 

I have a work study position in the History and Politics department. While I relish my time spent in the Annie, it’s nice to have a strong connection with another department. I really enjoy the professors!


Anything else about YOU you want to include?

 

I’ve encountered “the ghost of Annie” on several occasions in the theatre!
