Students who were active in the Theater Initiative speak about the professional skills they developed and the challenges they encountered and overcame while working as cast and​​​​ crew on Theater Initiative productions. Even though many of them received degrees in fields unrelated to theater, many of them credit the Theater Initiative with providing them entrée to performance-related fields. In whatever professions they have entered, our alumni have all developed invaluable collaborative skills and hands-on experience that have served them well in their lives after gradua​tion. Some of their experiences are recounted here in video format.​ ​​
