Singing for the Summer in South Boston

When Elyse Barnett, a Musical Theatre major from LaGrange, Georgia, auditioned at the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Lexington, Kentucky, she landed a professional musical theatre job for the summer. "If you can recognize and take advantage of those opportunities, then this is the college for you," she says. "Come here. Because you'll thrive. No matter who you are."
