Meet Caroline Marolf
Name: Caroline Marolf
Describe a memorable event or image in an ACU play in which you have performed, directed, designed or crewed or one you've seen here.
Working on Titanic: The Musical was such an incredible experience. I loved the hard work and research we put into our historical characters. We even had a tea party at Hickory Street Cafe where we dressed up as our characters and had a blast interacting with each other in an improvisational setting. It was a really cool experience and helped us to live in our characters even more.
How has faith impacted your journey as an artist?
I have loved how ACU has encouraged us to ask questions to see how our faith fits in with our art. Before I came to ACU, I had no idea what I would do when put into difficult situations. I now know that it is okay to stand up for what you believe in and not settle. I have also learned to trust God throughout my career's journey. He is always loving and watching over me. He has a plan and will help me in all of my endeavors.
What advice do you have for a prospective theatre major?
Have a blast here! Never limit yourself! Work hard. Take every opportunity you can while you're here! Audition for everything, work with costumes, sets, and lights, and stage manage a show. You can learn so much about your craft by looking at it from different perspectives.
Where do you see yourself after graduation?
I plan to get married, move to New York City and audition, audition, audition!
Spend a semester in New York City, studying with Broadway professionals and Tony Award-winning instructors.
