“The Eastern University Theatre Department has given me the opportunity to use my talent and skills in productions both on and off campus. Through Eastern’s involvement in KCACTF, I was able to get accepted into the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s Apprentice Repertory Program, where I applied my previous knowledge and training to a professional Shakespeare production. I am grateful to have a place where I can integrate my faith into my arts career.”
