Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

Courtney Holifield, Theatre Major

Name: Courtney Renee Holifield, Alumnus
Major: Theatre
Hometown: Clinton, Mississippi
Fact: I had never been in a theatre production before attending Belhaven University. I sang in many concerts, cabarets, and show choir ensembles, but I never acted until my freshman year.

Because Belhaven is a smaller university, the student/professor relationship is a lot more personal, our department has unbreakable bonds, and the one-on-one time with professors has helped further my craft. Belhaven has given me the confidence and skills I need to have a career in theatre. My professors have improved my craft, allowing me to play a wide range of characters. Because of the Belhaven University Theatre Department, I am more than an ensemble member dancing in the background or in the chorus singing with several hundred others. I am an actor.
