The student run improv troupe held it’s first performance of the semester. The troupe consists of returning theater majors and some first timers. The troupe performed an energetic show in front of a sold out crowd. Before the students hit the stage, I followed them that day to see what goes on behind the scenes.
Raquel Bell drove straight to Hollywood after receiving her communications degree with a minor in theater arts from UTA. Bell can be seen on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless”, “The Ghost Whisperer”, “The Eleventh Hour”, “CSI: Miami”, ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and the Dreamworks/Paramount movie “I Love You, Man”. In between auditions, TV and movie roles, she also plays the role of wife and mother at home and attributes her success to God and her family. She is an example of just how far UTA Mavericks can go if we put our minds to it. Catch Raquel Bell on the big screen later this year in the Paramount film “A Thousand Words” starring Eddie Murphy.
