Aretta (Casebolt) Baumgartner, BA/Theatre and Communications '91

My wide range of theatre experiences at Ashland (onstage and off) prepared me to really work in theatre and be able to do many different things. I worked in the box office at Ashland and was able to add those duties to my acting internship after graduation making myself more marketable and attractive than others who were "just" actors. My comfort level with light and sound enabled me to be offered a job as a performer with a touring company that also required some technical knowledge. AU Theatre taught me to be flexible, adaptable, professional, and to be a good person/employee as well as a good artist.
