Who's up next for Senior Spotlight? Why, it's Max Moline!

Moline has been an active participant in theatre at SAU since his first year, and boy does he have a lot to show for it! Not only did he direct the play Agnes of God in the studio theatre this past fall, but he recently won second place in the Region V SDC competition at the American College Theatre Festival! Way to go Max!

You may have seen Moline on stage in various roles such as Arthur in The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley (a role for which he received a nomination to the Irene Ryan Acting Competition), as himself in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged (Revised) or Tim in last spring's production of Noises Off. It's time we learned a little more about him and what makes St. Ambrose Theatre so important to him.

Major: Theatre/Art History

What is one of your favorite roles you have played? Myself in The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged. It was an incredibly fun show and I loved the opportunity to interact with the audience.

What is one of your dream roles? Pippin in Pippin. I love the music and the story, and I hope I will be able to participate in a production of it someday.

What drew you to SAU? I discovered that St. Ambrose gives out great scholarships, and receiving a scholarship for theatre really helped me to see that St. Ambrose was offering a good program. Plus, I heard about how wonderful Professor Cory Johnson was and I wanted to work with her myself.

What are some of your favorite memories from your time here at St. Ambrose? Traveling to Ireland with the Theatre in Ireland class, and getting 1st Runner Up at KCACTF for the Society for Directors and Choreographers Competition this past January in Des Moines. It was fantastic getting to see a lot of hard work pay off.

Any advice for other students and incoming first years? Try everything. Audition for everything. This is a school where you have the option of trying and participating in anything you set your mind to. Take advantage of it.

What are some of your future plans? I hope to attend many professional acting auditions in the future to get work in theatre, and will be working a lot to save money whenever possible for whatever life brings me to next.

Max has been a valuable asset to the St. Ambrose Theatre Department and we are sad to see him go. Best of luck in all you do and know you always have a home at Ambrose. With such an impressive resume, we are excited to see where you will go!
