New Boston | 2012

Why SMU? Got a tour from the head of the theatre department! What I do on campus? Acting, hair, makeup, dance, singing/choir, choreography—I’m involved in every SMU production. My best trips? To London, London, London! Also to Italy, Paris, Scotland, and Ireland. My goal? To become a name you remember. :)

The Show is Done…Now What?

October 12, 2011

We just finished putting on a great production of Playboy of the Western World, an Irish folk drama this last weekend. It was so much fun! I played the Widow Quinn which was a tough role, but I think I was able to pull it off decently. After a run of four days, we struck … More >

Deciding to Act at SMU

October 5, 2011

As you saw at the end of my last post, I had decided that I wanted to be an actress. This came as quite a shock to my parents who were both science majors (agricultural science and computer science). So, they took me to see a “life councilor”. I think they hoped that I would … More >
