Former student

“I say this with 100 percent honesty — if I had not gone to Newman and met Mark (Mannette, director of theatre), and had not been mentored by him, I would never have written a single work. He encouraged and challenged me to write and gave me so many opportunities. People I tell can’t believe how much I got to do.” - Chelsea Smet from Newman Today by Dana Beity, January 25, 2018
