Guests invigorate theatre performances

November 16, 2016

November has been a busy month for theatre students. In the midst of preparing for the November openings of A Flea in Her Ear, The Light in the Piazza, and She Kills Monsters, theatre students hosted several guest artists.

Many of the workshops and master classes were focused around the college audition process. Guy Sanville the Artistic Director of the Purple Rose Theatre Company, worked with directing students and ran mock auditions for seniors. Another guest, professor Bob Davis from the Hartt School, worked with students in the Voice & Diction class and gave a master class on monologues for college auditions. Austin Murray of the National Theatre Institute was also on hand to teach a workshop on movement.

On November 14-15, theatre hosted their annual alumni panel. This year’s panel featured John Tufts (IAC 96, IAA 97-99), a well-known Shakespeare performer; Michael McMillian (IAA 95-98) of HBO’s True Blood; and Natalie Knepp (IAA 00-02), who has been featured as a guest star and voice actress for many television programs and commercials.
