SAC Theatre Arts – Lessons in Confidence, Stage Managing, and Conquering Fear

Taking theatre classes has opened my eyes in so many ways. It has taught me to be more confident, open, and live outside the box. I saw a different light as soon as I took Acting Fundamental here at SAC. I was beyond nervous and scared to death because I didn’t know what to expect. There were times when I just wanted to run out screaming, but I knew that if I gave [...]

Marriage Wears a Lacy, White Cape: On Big Love’s Protagonist

Istate the obvious: every story needs a protagonist. The corollary to that statement is every protagonist needs an antagonist. There would be boring stories all around without these elements. Imagine a story beginning and ending with, “A boy rides a bike. The End.” We need more! So we say, “A boy rides a bike, tears streaming down his face and his shirt torn to shreds while the school bully races behind him with [...]

Our Communal Art

The act of putting on a stage production is unlike anything I have ever experienced in my life. One of the first things I took away from being in a production was that it is almost entirely in flux from the day the script is chosen (sometimes even before it is chosen!) to the closing night of the show.

Breaking Comfort Zones

Ifeel that as I grow older I will always look back at SACTA as one of the greatest experiences of my life. Why? Because, this is the show that got me to act again. It inspired me to get back on the stage and feel alive again.  Before this show it was very hard to be comfortable in my own skin… Which is why I went on hiatus and switched my focus to [...]

Chris Talks Big Love, Cultural Expectations, + Making Choices

“I wanted to go back to what some people thought was one of the earliest plays of the Western World, which is The Suppliant Women, and see how that would look today.  See if it still spoke to the moment, and of course it does.  It’s all about refugees and gender wars and men and women trying to find what will get them through the rubble of dysfunctional relationships, and anger and rage and heartache.” [...]

AYW: Lessons Learned in Sexuality, Culture, and Power

Perhaps the most thrilling piece of working on the Fall Show, Angry Young Women in Low-Rise Jeans with High-Class Issues, has been the exploration of social sexual stigmas about male and female roles and how these stigmas influence my personal sexuality. Clearly, the play addresses many sexual experiences and concepts, but I found myself pushing even those boundaries.

I found it quite curious that as I was parading around in next to nothing, the [...]
