Student in the Spotlight: Nick Casella

     This week's Student in the Spotlight is...
      Nick Casella!

    Nick Casella is a junior at EMU majoring in Theatre Arts and minoring in Entertainment Design & Technology! Nick has performed in Shaking Earth, Taking Flight, Irrational, To Kill A Mockingbird, and can be seen in our upcoming productions of Androcles and the Lion, and Legally Blonde!! Nick is currently playing Petey in our production of Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party, which has performances running this weekend! The Birthday Party is his favorite show he has worked on here, "It's been amazing the whole time," he said. Nick has always wanted to work on Little Shop of Horrors and Avenue Q, "They are amazing, super great, and I love them," he said. 

    On the design side, Nick was assistant lighting designer for our production of Tintypes!  
    His favorite memory of EMU Theatre is, "Working on lights for The Shape of Things. Even though I wasn't the designer, I got to help with it and that was so cool...and I miss Brian Scruggs!"
    After graduation he plans on, "Doing the theatre thing. Going to New York and not being a waiter, that's the end goal."
