The Importance of Pursuing Your Passions

Picture this: a college student, and long-time thespian with dreams of living and working in the Big Apple closing her eyes and holding her breath as she presses “send” on a game-changing email. As it turns out, pressing send was one of the best decisions she ever made. I’m Sabrina, and that college student is me.

Back in December I visited Theatrical Rights Worldwide while on a trip to New York City with a group of fellow theatre students from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. I had always been a performer but upon reaching college I found myself more interested in the business aspect of “show business”. During our visit we listened to Mr. Jim Hoare speak about this company and all of the things that go on here and I knew immediately I needed to know more.

6 Tips For First Time Theatre Teachers

A college professor once told me to write the following in my notebook at the beginning of our very first class: “There is no such thing as a child who hates music. But there are plenty who hate music teachers.” He then said if that is the only thing I remember from his class, it will be enough. Forty years later, it is the only thing I remember from that class. But its wisdom guided much of what I accomplished as a teacher and director.

Below are a few things I picked up from my forty years of teaching that I hope will help you succeed in your career as a teacher.

Whether you are more comfortable with a structured, linear rehearsal process or a more improvised, spontaneous approach, children, young and old, will sense if you are unprepared, stressed and/or ill-equipped for the task ahead.

The Arts Taught Me That

As the Marketing Manager for TRW, I have come to realize that many of the skills I utilize daily and value in others were shaped through my education in the arts. In high school I was the president of my Thespian troupe (shout out to Troupe #533!) before moving on to receive a Bachelor’s degree…
