Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

Sarah Grace Harris, Theatre Major

Name: Sarah Grace Harris
Major: Theatre
Hometown: Fort Worth, Texas
Fact: In my free time I enjoy knitting and doing puzzles.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... One of the main things that impressed me about Belhaven was the amount of theatre courses offered here. There are plenty of Christian universities that have a theatre program, but they didn’t have the same depth of theatre that I found at Belhaven. Now that I am here I have grown in my skills and discovered skills I didn’t even know I had.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... With a group of professors that genuinely care for their students I find it rather difficult to pick just one. They create a family environment for us and each one has been essential for my growth as a student, yet Rebekah Bert is someone who was continuously has been there to help refine my skills as a carpenter and scenic artist. She has encouraged me to always do my best and never gives up on a student even if it takes them five times to remember different knots or how the color wheel works, and for that I am grateful.    

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I have been prepared on how to present myself to future employers and trained to produce a high quality of work. I now feel confident in what I do as an artist.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Preparation
