Over the last three years, I have grown a great deal as an individual and theatre artist at Ashland University. Before attending Ashland University, I had participated in community and high school productions of theatre but was too afraid to make the decision to pursue theatre as a career. After coming to Ashland, I knew what was best for me was to create my major and study theatre and business management. I was able to do this by becoming a multidisciplinary studies major (MDS). I came to Ashland University because of the mission to have the “accent on the individual.” By having intimate classes, trained staff, and the opportunity to become a well-rounded theatre artist through diverse theatre experiences, I feel Ashland University prepared me to enter the world with a great deal of knowledge and the continuous drive to learn as a producer. Without opportunities such as being able to house manage, stage manage, act, participate in marketing and work in the box office, costume and scene shops, I would not have a better understanding of what each area of theatre needs during a production. A producer needs someone who wants to bring every area of theatre together, who acts as a leader, and who wants to bring art to communities. These opportunities were because of my MDS major and for me, Ashland University has prepared me and reinforced my idea that I should follow my passion and work toward producing for a living.
