Congratulations to another of our FCSAA Theatre Division Students of the Month for October... Ellie Autry, Eastern Florida State College! Ellie was nominated by her advisor, Ms. Jeanine Henry. Her photo was from the production of A Midsummer Night's Dream where she plays Helena.
Here is what Jeanine told us about Ellie: "Ellie has been a dynamic member of our program for the last three years. She joined us as a dual-enrollment student and her growth has been exponential! She played the Dog in Wiley and the Hairy Man, a Hot Box dancer and ensemble member in Guys and Dolls, Eurydice in Antigone, Gretel, and other characters in The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon, and Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She has done outstanding work backstage, helping with props, serving as a dresser, and building scenery. Ellie is Vice President of our Titans Theatre Club. She has been a leader, serving as chairperson of the props committee for several productions. She has also led by modeling professional practices such as coming to early Midsummer Night’s Dream rehearsals with lines memorized, attending all rehearsals, and being on time and ready to work. Ellie is a remarkable young person and we are proud of the work she has done at EFSC!"
Way to go, Ellie! Congratulations to both of our Theatre Students of the Month for October.
