Once again, I have been quite busy with schoolwork and rehearsal for the past two weeks! Now, however, I have been focusing on one thing- ACT’s production of the play Stop Kiss, which is being performed December 1-4 — less than one month away.
Why, you ask, am I so involved with Stop Kiss? I have the pleasure of acting in the show, as well as performing with and being directed by my fellow students! As our work on the show has progressed, we have all become great friends, and we have learned a lot through rehearsals and acting workshops with professors. I absolutely cannot wait for showtime!
In other news, freshman enrollment day was yesterday, and I was faced with some mixed results. I was able to enroll in Basic Acting (good news for my theatre major!), but I couldn’t get into some of the bigger first-year classes like religion and philosophy. That being said, I didn’t camp out in a computer lab or the library or buy an ethernet cord like most people did- I enrolled from the comfort of my own bed, albeit at the mercy of the less-than-reliable school wifi.
All in all, I can’t complain too much- I have the necessary classes for my major(s), and I’m very happy with them. I can’t wait for the spring semester! And even if all else fails, I can always switch classes at a later date.
Until then, I’ll be spending my time in Fenwick Theatre!
