Theatre Major at Radford University
What advice would you pass down to current HS Theatre Students?
I would say to never give up, even if it seems like there are not enough opportunities or things are pulling you down. Don’t lose that passion and drive to get better. Having the motivation and love for something as amazing as theatre is the best feeling in the world and to be able to do it everyday with talented and genuine people is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
What is your favorite memory/show with the Chantilly HS Theatre Department?
My favorite memory was coming to theatre class and sitting in Ms. Spicer's office with a few other friends just talking and goofing around to start out the morning the right way. It was always fun to have that interaction with everyone because we were/still are one big family.
How would you describe your college experience as a Theatre Arts major?
It’s very different in college. As a performance focus I am required to audition for every show. Nobody likes auditioning so it’s kind of ugh. But in the end it’s giving me the experience I need in order to be successful later in life. My schedule purely depends on what i have going on in my classes or rehearsals so i have to dictate everything else around that. As well as being in a fraternity. All of the shows i have been in at Radford have been so much fun and i have learned so much from each of them.
What was your favorite show that you performed in at Chantilly High School?
My favorite show at Chantilly was Peter and the Starcatcher. It was an amazing experience to play Ted because he was such fun and outgoing kid to play. The rehearsal process was probably the most fun i had on a show in high school and i also got to work with my best friends.
