"Among the many seasons in my journey as an actor, my time spent with UWL Theatre was not only the most special, but the most important.  The program offered me incredible opportunities and instilled in me a profound belief in myself as a young artist.  It was there that I was fostered by my first theatrical family, and I am forever grateful."
