Every year in the Acting Seminar, students spend a week exploring a variety of theatrical styles before selecting one to study for the trimester. This year, one section of students opted to study radio drama. For our first recording, we selected two scripts from The Five Mysteries Program, an anthology radio show that ran from 1947 to 1950 in the United States.
Part of the purpose of our blog is to help introduce you to the performers coming through the Étude Sessions. I have commented in the past what extraordinary people our performers are, however, it's not every day that we are able to feature an article about an Étude Sessions performer from a business magazine, but then again, not every musician is Brianna Lane.

TEG-Student-KyleWhelton In June of 2011, after four incredible years at etude, I graduated in the first generation of students to attend what would become IDEAS for the entire tenure of my high school career. When I walked the bowl in June, I had a plan for the next five to ten years of my life. I was going to attend Marquette University for my undergraduate education, go on to law school, and then practice somewhere in Wisconsin. Fast-forward 3 years to March of 2014. I was a junior at Marquette University on track to graduate with a 4.0, running for Student Government President, and studying for the LSAT in preparation for the grueling process of applying to law school. But instead of worrying about taking the LSAT, one of the most notoriously hard graduate school entrance exams, I had a paralyzing anxiety of the idea of attending law school.
