  • Lauren McKee ’18

    • Majors: Music Theatre
    • Minors: Communication and Digital Media
    • Hometown: Warren, Illinois

    “The main reason I chose Carthage is the one-on-one attention received at my audition. The other college theatre auditions I attended were way less personal and I felt like I was just a number. I realize that is how theatre works in the real world, but I wanted my theatre education to be more personal. I also wanted to avoid being molded into a strictly music theatre performer, and Carthage has really helped me develop strong acting skills above everything else.”
