Theatre is taught in schools
Not because you are expected to major in theatre,
Not because you are expected to perform all through life,
Not so you can relax,
Not so you can have fun,
So you will recognize BEAUTY,
So you will be SENSITIVE,
So you will be closer to an INFINITE BEYOND THIS WORLD,
So you will have more LOVE,
Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living
Unless you know how to live?
That is why theatre is taught in our schools.
Tiffany March is a junior Biology major, Pre-PT with a theater minor. She is sad to say that this is her last semester of her undergrad. She has loved the time she has spent in the theatre department at carroll -- especially this semester. Recently, she was seen in The Untitled Women Project and is currently working on directing a ten minute play. Tiffany is also involved in the production of Donde Estas. She is so excited to show all these projects to audiences. Although she does not know if she will get back on stage in the future, she knows she wants to use her theatre background in her future as a Physical Therapist. She hopes to one day implement viewpoints work into a pediatric setting to make for a more positive, fun environment.
"We believe in teaching Theatre as an ART FORM. We train students to know what it means to be an Artist."
