“I was fortunate to see ‘The Laramie Project’ before my first year. I was absolutely floored by the talent on that stage and knew I had to be part of it!”
Hannah majored in theatre and psychology and enjoyed the liberal arts advantage. “North Central's theatre program is not a conservatory and I feel it’s better that way. You take core theatre classes, but also science, foreign language and more. You become well-rounded and a better actor.”
Senior Showcase, another feature of North Central’s theatre program, “allows you to perform for many of Chicago’s best casting directors and talent agents. This exposure is unbelievably valuable,” she says.
Hannah feels her studies at North Central have given her a leg up on the competition. “I feel I can hold my own in auditions in Chicago. And the connections I’ve made helped me get where I am today as an actor.”
