Artist of the Week: Emmett Spaw — junior

Lasirra Hines, Entertainment Editor

What is your involvement with Thespians?

Although I’m a member, I’m usually not too involved in thespian events. Sometimes I work on tech for the plays and musicals, but I’ve only ever performed in the One Acts.


What got you into Thespians and acting?

When I was in elementary school, I did a lot of performances and workshops at the Manhattan Arts Center. One time I shattered the door at the pottery studio, but that’s a story for another time.


Have you had any achievements in Thespians?

Every once in a while, the Thespians hold something called “Coffee House,” where you get five minutes to display a talent. Every time I get a chance, I go up there and spout baseless conspiracies about pelicans until they force me to stop.


What do you love most about Thespians?

Sometimes I ask for the keys to the basement just so I can go try on hats. It’s a lot of fun.


Do you plan on continuing something related to Thespians later on in life?

In this economy? Not really.
