Opinion Editor Nick Anstett spent his fall break prepping for his upcoming role as Alan in Charlotte Cugnini’s Senior Directing Thesis “Equus.” A family camping trip to Assateaque Island National Seashore proved to be a surprisingly opportune way to memorize lines and practice acting with the local fauna. Well, while keeping a healthy ten foot distance that is. Nick also spent his Friday traveling up and down the shore visiting Ocean City, Bethany, and Rehoboth beaches in the surprisingly quiet off-season. The offensive Confederate Flag shirts are still flying proudly. “Equus” opens up 7:30 on October 23.
Editor-in-cheif, Emma Way, is spending her fall break a bit more south! Emma says, “For Fall Break WACappella drove down to North Carolina to record our first EP at Liquid 5th Studio in Durham. We’re recording four songs and even doing a music video for one of them. Yesterday I drove six hours from Maryland to Durham with six other members of WACappella. The drive was actually pretty easy and I got to use cruise control (which is a luxury for me).We stopped only twice along the way and both times were at a Dunkin Donuts. Driving for six hours really isn’t that bad when you’re surrounded by friends who also love to sing in the car. Today we started recording our songs. It’s a long process, but the end product should be worth it. I can’t wait to hear and see it! We’re recording two songs today and two plus the video tomorrow. It takes about 3 hours per song, depending on the difficulty but fortunately there’s a lot of down time in between the time we’re recording our individual parts so I can work on my dreaded thesis a little.”
The Elm Editors are certainly staying busy this fall break! Check back tomorrow and see what some of the other editors are up to!
