Congratulations to Ms. Alexa Roddenberry, Tallahassee Community College, our FCSAA Theatre Division Student of the Month for September. She was nominated by her director, Eva Nielsen-Parks.
Here’s what Ms. Nielsen-Parks shared with us about Alexa: “Alexa Roddenberry has been a powerful asset to our theatre program since she arrived on campus in the Fall of 2016. She immediately joined our theatre volunteer group, Curtain Call, and got casted in a lead role in "The Curate Shakespeare: As You Like It" during her first semester. Since then, her commitment to our theatre program has continued to soar. Alexa is serving as the 2017-18 Events Coordinator for Curtain Call, and she never fails to add enthusiasm and creativity to any event she leads. Most recently, for our production of "The Laramie Project," Alexa stepped in for a sick lead actor the day of the show--a task which was handled with utmost professionalism. Alexa is a great example to her peers and never fails to come through when needed."
And here’s what Alexa shared with us about herself: “For the past two years, I have had the utmost pleasure of being involved with TCC’s incredible theatre program. Our student theatre group, Curtain Call, is in direct support of Theatre TCC!. As an officer, I have the job of connecting the theatre program to the student body. Because I am an officer, I believe it’s extremely important to always set a good example, whether it’s at rehearsal, in the classroom, or in the community. I demonstrate leadership by helping my fellow actors and classmates in any way I can, answering questions about Theatre TCC!, as well as making everyone who wants to participate feel involved and have a good experience. I try to go into every situation with a positive attitude, and I’ve learned that it most definitely rubs off on the people around me. I have such passion for what I do, and I’m so lucky to be able to help share such an incredible opportunity with people who feel the same way!”
Congratulations to this outstanding student, and our thanks to Ms. Nielsen-Parks for taking the time to nominate her for this recognition.
