We are in the Keller Black Box Theatre and we just love working in here. This is really a state-of-the-art theatre. The possibilities of what you can do in this space are... it's just so, so exciting. I teach a "Theatre for Social Change" class, which has become a lot more popular and a lot more important to students in recent years. So all the different ways that theatre and drama can be used as a tool to learn information, process information, share information... A lot of the topics that we're dealing with, you know, begins with the student. The student is at the center of it, their identity, who they identify with. Grande Valley and our theatre program is undergrads doing everything after teaching whatever skills need to be taught to just get out of the way and see what the students bring to life on stage. And we give them plenty of opportunities to have them create on their own. I hope that I instill in them the confidence that they have earned, that they have shown over and over again, that they can do. They can do difficult things. Just having theatre students walking away with that confidence and the variety of skills that they've learned here and to look back at their time at Grande Valley in the theatre program, and have those great feelings about what happened. And if I can help be a part of that, that's an that's an amazing thing. And then my job here has been taken care of and that's a good day's work!
