Design Student at Virginia Commonwealth University
What advice would you pass down to current HS Theatre Students?
Talk to everyone you can, make friends, be nice. You never know who is going to help you through the door, and return the favor! Help others, in a collaborative field (that's really REALLY small) being a good person is just as or more important than your talent!
What was your favorite show that you worked on at Chantilly H.S. and why?
My favorite show was Millie! Being able to choreograph a show was a huge challenge but it was the most rewarding experience being able to see it come together and knowing that I helped create something really fun!
Feel free to add anything else here you think is important that I have missed!
Techies, don't forget how important you are! No show would look good or happen without us! If you're interested in design DRAW EVERY DAY! look at art, practice your research skills, send your resume out, email every theatre you know of and ask if you can get onto their overhire list! It's really hard if you're used to being backstage to put yourself out there, but do it!! And make as many actor friends as you can because you can help each other work on more shows!
