Before I was a theatre fan, I was a wrestling fan. I think it’s because of wrestling I wanted to be a performer. I’ve always been engrossed by the epic tales of triumph and victory portrayed by athletes in the ring. The medium can greatly portray action, drama, and even comedy. I hope that this play can help bring about those ideals to everyone, no matter what their knowledge of wrestling is. Whether you’re a long time, just finally got into it, or have no clue what “kayfabe” means, I’m sure you’ll find something to like about this show. You might even be inspired to take a deeper look into other things that society tends to overlook. So please, help us get over, and please don’t bury us. I can’t be a jobber all my life. Enjoy all of you scalawags and marks.
Creative Team Profiles
My name is Mills Schulte. I am a sophomore pursuing a Environmental Studies major with a minor in Theatre and Performance. I have previous acting experience in musical theatre, plays, and even on-camera acting. Some recent roles I have performed include Eddie Flagrante in “Zombie Prom,” “Adult Men” in “Spring Awakening,” and Willard Hewitt in “Footloose.” I love collaborating with others to create the best possible experience on-set as well as even learning about the craft of storytelling and acting.
Billy Arrowsmith is a senior Journalism major and Theatre & Performance minor from the Bronx. He is curious about how much he can get away with lying in a program bio. He is the most handsome man on campus and a three-time Nobel Laureate. He once beat Shaquille O’Neal in a game of one-on-one basketball.
Bradley Rabinowitz is a senior Theatre and Performance major with a minor in Screenwriting. He has been seen in several different productions on campus, including
Homestead, Wonderland, Of Nazareth, My Own Eyes, and recently in Hunter X. Hollingsworth & Friends: Who Tells Your Story? He is also a writer and performer for the sketch comedy show Purchase Late Night, and also has been a constant member of Purchase’s Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadowcast. He is very thankful for all of the people he met here and all of the experiences he has had at Purchase and can’t wait to get into more crazy shenanigans in the near future. Thanks for letting him layeth the smacketh down one last time!
About the Conservatory of Theatre Arts
In our teaching and art, the Conservatory values inclusiveness, equality, and excellence. Upholding all of our training is our aim to train and graduate citizen artists: multifaceted people with a strong sense of purpose in approaching an arts education.
What is a citizen artist? Citizen artists seek to discover how their unique voices can contribute to our world. They understand what it means to be an artist, and what they are here on earth to say and do and make.
The Conservatory trains future citizen artists in three degree programs:
+ BFA Actor Training. The BFA is an intensive professional training program offered to a highly select and diverse group of students. The professional training is anchored in four years of study in acting, voice, speech, and movement, complemented by offerings in dramatic literature and analysis, history of the theatre, stage combat, improvisation, mask work, acting for the camera, and the business of acting. As one of five schools in the Consortium of Professional Theatre Training Programs, Purchase is one of a handful of colleges in the world capable of training artists at this level—and of drawing a faculty from the ranks of professional theatre
+ BFA in Theatre Design/Technology. Emphasizing studio and classroom training, our professional training program in theatre design/technology gives students the guidance and support of established and theatre industry professionals. Many of our alumni are recognized at the top of their field, and have received Tony, Emmy, Obie, and Drama Desk Awards, among other honors. Quite literally, Purchase grads are working in or have worked in every theatre on Broadway, in all tristate venues, and with countless touring productions
+ BA program in Theatre and Performance. From traditional theatre to cutting-edge interdisciplinary work, the theatre and performance major encourages creativity, intellectual curiosity, social engagement, and critical thinking. The core requirements combine scholarship and practice to provide students with a strong foundation in theatre history and dramatic literature, with mandatory stagecraft/production courses. Theatre and Performance majors are encouraged to expand the scope of their education by studying abroad, as well as pursuing coursework in other programs of study within the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Purchase College
