Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

Riley Pleasants, Theatre Major

Name: Riley Pleasants
Major: BFA Musical Theatre
Hometown: Omaha, Nebraska
Fact: I’ve lived in 10 states.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I wanted to attend a small Christian school that had a BFA of musical theatre.  

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven...My relationship with the Theatre department as a whole. The Belhaven theatre department is a tight knit family that loves each other, the Lord, and theatre. They work together and are always there to build you up.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University...I will be able to pursue an acting career. After Belhaven I may choose to continue learning at a conservatory for musical theatre or jump right into auditioning for a dream job!
