GRADUATE PROFILES OF THEATRE ARTS MAJORS
Paul D'Agostino, class of 2004
I have no regrets about choosing Gordon College for my undergraduate degree in Theater Arts. In fact, I think it was the best decision I ever made. The core liberal arts education I received at Gordon continues to inform my growth as an actor and artist on a daily basis. The intimate size of the Theatre department allowed me to perform regularly in both mainstage and student directed productions for all four years of my Gordon experience. The highly qualified and personable faculty at Gordon granted opportunities for me to study acting at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA and perform at the Gloucester Stage Company, an equity regional theater on the North Shore. I was even able to work as a professional actor for three years with History Alive, a professional theater company associated with Gordon College. I never stopped!
Now that I'm in my last year of graduate work at The Boston Conservatory and have had some time away from Gordon, I look back and see how truly amazing it was to learn and grow with other Christians. I made lifelong friends in the Gordon Theatre department and I recommend the program to anyone who wants a well rounded education paired with quality, unbeatable performance opportunities and training.
Paul Turbiak, class of 2005
The Theatre Arts department at Gordon College offers the best liberal arts training for a Christian artist. The intimacy of the program allowed me to get more performance opportunities and contact with faculty than any other school I know. I was able to dabble in a number of different areas, learning all sides of the craft. Through History Alive, I was able to work as a professional actor, gaining artistic and practical experience. The training at Gordon seeks to cultivate not only the mind and body, but also (and most importantly) the soul of the artist. Without a sense of calling, I would be nothing more than another actor trying to hack it. The artistic landscape is difficult to say the least. Gordon gave me a compass.
