Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

Kyra Smiley, Theatre Major

Name: Kyra Love Smiley
Major: BFA Musical Theatre
Hometown: Mobile, Ala.
Fact: that I have been given the chance to meet multiple Broadway performers because of my Summer spent as a carpentry intern at The Gateway Playhouse in Long Island, NY.

I chose to come to Belhaven because...it allowed me to pursue my love for theatre and my love for Jesus Christ.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... this is a hard question to answer because I will treasure so many of them. I appreciate the relationships I share with our department faculty. However, the relationship that I have with my mentor, Dr. David Sollish, is truly a blessing. He wants nothing more than to see all of his students succeed.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University...I will have the tools I need to be able to work in any aspect in theatre.  Our theatre department has already given me the opportunity to work as an actor, choreographer, designer, and carpenter in a very short amount of time. I have no doubts that I will have a future in theatre.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Irreplaceable
