"The Red Rocks theatre gave me a renewed love for theatre that had slowly been lacking throughout high school. I always loved building sets, but this program gave me the opportunity to realize that I love makeup and stage management even more. It is wonderful to find a program that makes the technical side of theatre as amazing as the acting, and I am happy to say that this program kept me in a field i love, and on a path to an incredible career."
