The musical theatre character I most identity with is the Chaperone from the Drowsy Chaperone because she drinks a lot….
And that’s it

Part of me wants to live in a suburban neighborhood with a nice big backyard and a grill for weekend cookouts and then commute to work everyday with my nice car.
Another part of me wants to live in the city with a sleek condo and I’d be apart of the swingin’ theatre scene, heading to bars almost every night.
Then there’s this part of me that wants to live in a small, artsy town where everyone knows you and there’s these really cute local businesses and then there’s this one amazing theatre that the while town goes too.
Still, there’s another part of me that wants to build a house on the beach and bum for the rest of my life.

Tips/Tricks for Theatre Students in college
So, I just graduated from Undergraduate School and am getting ready to head to Grad School in a year. I’ve been mostly reflecting on my college career and came up with tips/tricks to help make college so much fun! Think of these as guidelines :P
This might be the ONLY time you’ll get to see the world before you get a job and the loan payments begin. Going to London to study theatre was probably one of the best choices of my life. I got to see what theatre is like in England and it changed my career choices as to where I want to take my theatre degree. Besides that, I learned so much about myself, the global community and made some amazing friends! Now I’m going back there to get my Master’s Degree…..I’m counting down the days!
2. Minor in something!
You’d be surprised at how many things relate to theatre. I minored in art, which helped me with designing. Graphic Design is a props master’s best friend. If you’re a set designer, minor in math. History and English helps with design too! Music is so important for a performer and a sound designer. Don’t get me started on how important Dance is! The possibilities are endless. You’ll make friends outside of the department and have supplemental knowledge for your field.
3. Get involved! Try new things!
From the moment you step on campus, march right down to the theatre department and get active. Volunteer to work with the lighting crew, the costume shop, the box office or the scene shop. Sign up for crews as soon as the sheets go up. If you’re an actor and you did not get cast, sign up to work on crew (if you can, depending on the degree and the program). You’ll learn the other side of theatre, get to know the technicians, and the faculty will see how dedicated to theatre you really are. Actors and Techies: It doesn’t matter if you’re not familiar with a certain area! You’re in college and you’re here to learn! You may discover a new passion, plus you’ll be more marketable when you graduate.
4. Don’t be afraid to say no.
It’s great to get involved, but do not overexert yourself. I went to a small school where they needed you to be involved with a show, maybe even two at once. I did this my sophomore year and wore myself out to the point where I almost collapsed. Take on a big role for a show, and then take a breather! Relax, catch up on sleep, do your homework (I can’t stress this enough) and hang out with your friends. Or maybe take on a bunch of smaller jobs at once or evenly space them out. Whatever you do, keep track of your mental and physical heatlh. But….don’t miss class too often. Your professors will notice!
5. That being said, stay healthy!
Getting sick at college is the absolute worst. It messes up everything, especially if you’re a theatre major. Eat healthy, exercise, DO NOT get drunk every night, sleep, laugh and take time for yourself during the year. If you need to spend a Saturday cuddled up with a movie and a bowl of soup…do it! Take sometime to hangout with friends and go on a shopping/dinner date or take a walk in nature to clear your mind. Drink water every day!! Just please stay healthy.
6. Don’t be afraid of having your dreams change.
This happened to me.I went to college thinking I would end up creating props for Broadway but then London happened. I discovered my love for Shakespeare and knew I needed to go back. Then, I interned for Sleep No More in New York City. I discovered that I really loved immersive theatre and felt the need to create more theatre like this. And finally, I gave a presentation about Yorick the skull and discovered that I liked teaching others about theatre. What a big plan change! It’s scary to have your dreams change. But, in college you’re introduced to different types of theatre and different areas of it. You may discover that you want to do something else or you might discover that your current dream is the right one for you
7. Make friends outside of theatre!
When you go to a small school, you’re around the entire theatre class 24/7. Tensions rise and drama occurs. Sometimes you just need to get away from it all and clear your head. I had friends outside of the theatre department that I roomed with and we had so much fun together. After a long day(and night..) in the theatre, it was really nice to come back to people you haven’t spent your whole day around. You can give them the latest theatre gossip and they can give you gossip from their department! Also as a side note….don’t make enemies in the department. It’s really bad for the morale of the team, plus you don’t want that to come and bite you in the ass later. (In terms of working together in the future, references, and getting roles/positions) God, theatre can be so catty!
8. Most importantly…HAVE FUN!
Make amazing friends! Spend all night talking to your roommate about the latest episode of Doctor Who. Go out to dinner when caf food is making you sick. Pick a day to make a meal with your roommates. Drunkenly bake cookies. Watch Ghost Adventures on Friday nights in the dark. Hang up Christmas lights and leave them up all year round. Sit in your theatre’s Green Room and chat with all your buddies. Go swimming in the college pool. Have a movie night. Go the Bars on Halloween. Make a snowman. Arrive at the cafeteria when it opens and stay till it closes.Take a break from studying to get coffee. Buy a tub of ice cream on Valentine’s Day. Challenge yourself by taking harder classes. Step out of your comfort zone as a techie and actor, perform or design a set! Volunteer. Start a bonfire. Branch out and make friends with actors and technicians. During shows were nothing happens, play your DS backstage. Go ghost hunting. Get a crush on an adorable actor/technician. Make Friday nights N64 Night. Go to as many campus events as you can.Stay in the plaza talking until it turns dark out. Get up and eat breakfast. Watch Cartoons. Dress up on Monday and wear sweats on Friday. Take a dance class. Document everything on your iPhone. Get free t-shirts. Love your life.
