"I'm proud to say I have a visceral knowledge of the classics, specifically Shakespeare, and my passion for making those stories engaging, creative and dynamic was nurtured here over the last four years. My training has prepared me for a life as not just an actor, but an artist—aware of the world around me and informing how I choose to communicate a story to an audience. Moreover, my training has prepared me for life as a person—fully aware, curious, passionate, articulate, open and, above all, present."
BFA Class of 2005
"As a BFA student in Minneapolis, I feel like I've been able to garner a knowledge and understanding of theater on a national scale in this country, and even internationally in the semester spent studying our craft in England, while still getting very special, individualized attention in a comfortable nurturing environment, blending the best of both worlds: comfortable familiarity and challenging new experiences and insights."
