Theatre Travels: Hello, Cincinnati! USITT 2015

So, this past week, instead of partaking in the usual Spring Break activities (i.e. sleeping in, visiting family, sweating to death in Florida), I decided to invest in going to my first USITT (The United States Institute for Theatre Technology).

Now, my goals for this trip were fairly simple – to enjoy some helpful workshops, have fun, get some swag, and figure out my plans post-graduation. I spent the week prior preparing my resume (which has been added as a sub-page under my about me page tab), creating business cards, and of course, making sure my wardrobe was perfected.

I attended with my good friends and colleagues Kassidy Coburn, Joseph A Franjoine, Spencer Harder, and Zach Bowen, as well as with my professor Jon Shimon. I stayed in a crappy motel with Kassidy, Joseph, and Spencer because we couldn’t afford the nicer hotels. We had to get up early for workshops. I had to get out of my shell and actually talk to people.

….I honestly don’t regret any of it.

A lot of wonderful experiences happened. I made some funny memories. And I got some opportunities presented to me. I am unsure as to what I’ll be doing next, but I have some things to consider now. If any of you out there are wondering whether the money for this trip is worth it, stop questioning. Just go!*
