” I came to some shows at Rowan before and I immediately knew that I wanted to do theatre here because it looked like the actors were having so much fun together. What motivates me to get up and through the day is the thought of seeing my friends and having rehearsal for the show I’m in, Hair. I remember all of the fun things I can do, and have done, and I get up and get ready! Watch out world, here I come!” Isabel Newell, freshman theatre major (musical theatre concentration) from Moorestown, NJ (Burlington County) who lives in Holly Pointe Commons
