Theatre Banquet

Every year the theatre professors at MNU host a beautiful Theatre Banquet in Bell. It is held at the very end of the school year and awards are given out. But the main reason MNU students get giddy with excitement about the theatre banquet is that at the banquet they announce next school years shows. Its a big ordeal and we go all out for it. This years banquet theme was Masquerade…

Here’s an adorable picture of some of the gals getting ready in the green room before the banquet.

You’re still scrolling because you wanna know what next years shows are don’t you?? Well hold on a second I’ve got more fabulous pictures…

I love this picture because it is with my two freshman that helped me with my baking with freshman vlog a couple months ago. Dana and Christian are on MNU’s impov team with me and Christian was in BOTH shows this past school year!

Elisa, Dana, and Christian pose for a picture together at the banquet.

 

 

Many people smile for a banquet selfie

This year I was honored to receive the award for Outstanding Performance for the role of Lucy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Other awards given out this year were: Outstanding Improviser, Freshman of the Year, Rookie Performance of the year, Techie of the Year, and the Senior Spotlight Award.

I am so excited for next years show! Seriously y’all they are gonna be so good! In the fall we are doing a community wide version of Into the Wood and in the Spring we are doing Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare in our Blackbox Theatre. I, being a musical theatre geek, am ecstatic about Into the Woods. I cannot wait to get started with that show!

Basketball with Tristin

A lot of my blogs and vlogs are about MNU’s fine arts departments like choir and theatre. The cool thing about MNU is that because we are a smaller community I have friends that participate in all different activities at school. Here’s a quick video that I made with my friend Tristin. Tristin is such a cool human being and she has been playing on MNU women’s basketball team  for three years now!

Jobs. Jobs. Jobs!

And so the hunt beings. You can smell the excitement and fear in the air. It is internship application time! Some of us will come out victorious with our dream summer internship to look forward to… others of us will not be quite so lucky. Either way it is well worth the climb. Months ago I put in my application for Starlight Theatre’s summer production intern position. Applications were due at the end of March. Mine was turned in January 15th. This was my second year applying for an inters hip with Starlight. Last year I received an email saying that[…]

Organizational Behavior Class

As some of you know I am a junior business student. This semester I’m in a class called organizational behavior. In organizational behavior we do all of our projects and tests in groups. That’s right I said tests. Today my group presented to the class and one of our assignments was to create a video together. Below I have attached the video that we created for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy! Elisa Davis

Spring Break 2K17

What a lovely spring break! This year I went to Omaha, NE with my friend Renee just for fun. We visited the Omaha Zoo and Aquarium, went to an improv show, and visited The Old Market.

 

On Saturday morning we did yoga in the aquarium!

We also visited Bob the Pedestrian Bridge. This bridge is cool because you can stand it both Nebraska and Iowa at the same time!

In all it was a fabulous weekend. For only a three hour drive it was well worth the trip!

MNU Theatre Through the Years

This past weekend MNU celebrated 50 years! There were events all weekend long including MNU Theatre Through the Years which was a show with scenes and songs from many of the shows that MNU has performed for the last 50 years. MNU reached out to alumni that had been a part of the theatre department to see if they would return to perform their old roles. The current students filled in the roles that had not be claimed by alumni. There was about twenty alumni who came back to be in the show! With all the people that participated in[…]

All Bets are Off…

A couple of weeks ago my friend Blake Holden and I had a bet. We were in Des Moines, Iowa the last week of January for KCACTF. (I wrote an entire blog on KCACTF keep scrolling for details). The bet was simple. Whoever met the most people and took the most selfies with them by the end of the week won. The winner got to choose the outfit (from MNU’s costume closet) that the loser had to wear at our next improv show. Guess who won… ME. Feel free to go look at all the selfies I took with random[…]
