Student blog: student edition of Bad Body Image Days-Théâtre

Student Blogger: Meredith Muirhead

Excerpt: You have a hard time finding a student who has no problem with their body image, let alone a student who studies theater. It’s sad but true. Society has set such toxic bodily standards that we especially feel like actors because we literally represent society in our work, and this can have a major effect on our performance in class or in rehearsal. It’s no secret that we need to take care of ourselves whether we like it or not, and lean bodies aren’t the same as healthy bodies, but hey, we all have days when caring for our bodies is harder than usual. Days (or weeks, it’s okay) of poor body image come in, and they can be horrible, but they are nothing that cannot be conquered.

Student Blogger: Zac Denver Lee

Extract: We made a cabaret! No, not the musical, but the cabaret style of performance. If you are wondering what a cabaret is, according to Wikipedia, cabaret is a form of theatrical entertainment featuring music, songs, dances, recitations, or plays. The venue for the performance can be a pub, casino, hotel, restaurant or nightclub with a stage for the shows.

Student blogger: Allie Pruett

Extract: Every four years or so for … probably twenty years, MBU has performed Handel’s Messiah. This year is one of those years. Needless to say, it’s not an easy job.

If you need help, don’t be afraid to reach out. There are a lot of people around you who are all going through the same thing and are always ready to support you in any way they can. Take advantage, remember that you are never alone, especially during this time of the semester.
