Spotlight: Amanda Sturman                                    

Major: Bachelor of Arts in Theater

Favorite Arcadia memory: “This spring semester we did ‘The Bacchae’ by Euripedes. I’ve never done a Greek play before, and it was amazing. During rehearsal, I didn’t quite understand at first the point of view the director had, but it came to be that it was really awesome. It was ‘rock-meets-religious-cults.’ Such an interesting vision. I had a small role as the Messenger.”

After Arcadia: Amanda plans to start a career in audience services with the Colorado Shakespeare Festival at the University of Colorado Boulder, while possibly acquiring her Masters of Arts in Theatre and Performance Studies at the university.
