Tiffany Christensen (07) completed her BA degrees in theatre performance and music. Her passion for ministry led her to Redding, CA shortly after graduation where she interned for the Art's Director at Bethel School of Ministry and subsequently produced and directed the school?s first full-length production in 2010. "Being at FHU helped expand my vision for what the arts and ministry could do together," she says. For the last few years Tiffany had the privilege of working for a children's theatre as an instructor and Artistic Director. In addition to the performing arts, other creative venues include, set-designing for several local shows, helping her father start a ministry-focused arts website, and creating and selling artwork of her own.

Currently, she is pursuing her Master of Letters and Master of Fine Arts degrees in Shakespearean and Renaissance Literature in Performance at Mary Baldwin College, in conjunction with the American Shakespeare Center's Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, Virginia. With roles in Henry VIII, The Alchemist and The New Inn, and experiences of leading workshops, guest-lecturing at local universities, and interning with the professional Blackfriars Playhouse, she has truly used her background earned at FHU.

He spent a couple of summers teaching and building for Trollwood Performing Arts School in Fargo North Dakota. Recently, Will confessed that "if it wasn't for Freed-Hardeman and it's dedication to individual attention both in the classroom and in practical application of my studies on the stage I would not have been nearly as confident about the skills and knowledge that I possess." His work has also appeared in a number of smaller community theatre venues around the Twin Cities area. He currently is designing and teaching at Century College while holding outside contracts with a local community theatre as their Scenic Designer and Technical Director.

Starla performed regularly for adult audiences and for children with the Freed-Hardeman Pied Pipers. After graduation, Starla worked as a nanny in New York City, then with the Jackson Sun as a graphic artist before opening Starla Stewart Photography. "It is amazing how much theatre plays a role in my photography," says Starla. "I value all of my experiences with the FHU theatre program. Even though the program is not very large, it allows for one-on-one coaching and the opportunity to have a lot of stage time. I was able to play a wide spectrum of characters from a young girl in Our Town, to a middle aged woman in All My Sons to a storybook narrator in Into The Woods. I use my theatre knowledge while staging my photoshoots. I'm grateful for what I gained from FHU theatre."
