Amanda McNulty moves on to new adventure in the Big Apple.
As a UCC Theatre Arts student, Amanda had prominent roles in several campus productions including: Bus Stop, Romeo & Juliet and Brownstone. This fall, Amanda McNulty was accepted into the 3-year Stella Adler Studio in New York City. She writes about life in the Big Apple:
"I'm absolutely loving the Stella Adler Studio ... I spend 30 hours in class with at least an additional 30 of work outside class including rehearsals ... One of my favorite classes is my Neutral Mask class which is a movement for actors class in which we often use masks to explore expression... I am constantly inspired by the people I work with in the class room. Most of my peers have traveled half way around the world to come study at this school (and I thought moving across the country was far!). I am one of 11 Americans who were accepted into the program this year and there are 31 people total."
Stephanie Newman, Amanda's theatre arts professor at UCC, comments, "Amanda has great talent, and I’m very proud of her stepping on to the next level in her training and career. She is one example of the many success stories from our students who train to be prepared for when opportunities arise. Best of luck, Amanda!"
We wish much success to Amanda on her new journey. And as we say in the theatre, 'break a leg' Amanda!
