FUNdraising

This week, as members of STAMP and I fundraise for PROM, I’m realizing something big. People love art. People want to experience art, specifically art that’s part of a communal experience. People will pay money to enrich their lives with art and support the work of artists. Desiré was selling tickets at the end of […]

*With Valid Student ID

So, I’ve inevitably been thinking a lot about graduation over the past few weeks. I’ve experienced the gamut of classic post-grad feelings: fear, anxiety, readiness, suspense, excitement, bewilderment.

The PLAY After Tomorrow (It’s Wicked Cold)

The Power of Art in a Naiton

There once was a city called Medellin tucked away in the mountains of northwest Colombia. It was once home to the cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, and with the cartels came crime and violence. In 1991, it was the murder capital of the world. The Colombian government intervened to help alleviate this horrific state, but not […]

The Easy Choice

Previously on this blog I have advocated for the consideration of stage managers as theatre artists, citing our creative sensibilities in communicating notes from the rehearsal room, and the influence we can have on the execution of the design elements in a production. I truly believe this, and recognize in myself my own capacity for […]
