Student Spotlight: Sunny Rawlinson

"I'm stage managing the first show of the season, "35mm: A Musical Exhibition" By Ryan Scott Oliver. I'm super excited about this project because it's a show I'm really personally attached to but I also have the chance to work with a visiting professor as my director and I always jump at the opportunity to work with new people and to collaborate in new ways."

Faculty Spotlight: Matt Greenberg

"In my classes I believe that multiple perspectives are valued in creating the world of play. No two people are a like, hence, there isn't one right answer to something. I train artists and not simply performers. A performer is limited to performing, however, an artist CAN perform, but they can also think creatively, devise their own work, work in multi-disciplinary ways, and have a deep value of the process as well as the product."
