My name is Olivia Bentley, and I am currently a junior at West Sound Academy. I grew up watching and loving theatre and have always been drawn towards it. I have had the opportunity to be in multiple productions as an actor and helping backstage with sets and costumes. I am interested in all kinds of theatre but especially love musical theatre. I love getting to step out of my life for a few hours and tell someone else's story, seeing the audience's reaction, and sharing something with others. Over the next two years in my IB Theatre course, I would love to learn more about the history and background of theatre and to better understand its beginnings in terms of why people began sharing stories in this way, and how it created such an impact on people.
