Prepared for the Future

Courtney Thompson

"During my time with the MUW Theatre Department, I was trained in all aspects of the theatre and worked closely with my professors and classmates to open several productions. These productions prepared me for the professional world by teaching me collaboration and communication skills, and the general style of teaching prepared me to work in any theatre job available. I am currently using these skills from The W at SPARC - Youth Performing Arts in Richmond, Virginia where I work as a technician for our virtual classes."

– Courtney Thompson
