ARTSGALA

Philip Stock '18, Acting (Musical Theatre)

"I would not be the artist I am today without the faculty of the department of theatre, dance, and motion pictures, and I am so grateful for their guidance and teaching."

Tell us more about you and your life, your profession, and your successes.

I am a recent graduate living in New York City. I recently finished touring with Kinky Boots, and now I am in the city auditioning and getting myself set up in the industry!

What is your favorite Wright State memory?

Marya Spring Cordes pulling me into her office and telling me that I had no business accepting mediocrity from myself. She encouraged me to pursue writing, and reminded me that I am a force to be reckoned with when I apply myself and take ownership of my work.

What did receiving the ARTSGALA scholarship mean to you?

It relieved the financial burden of college in a way that allowed me to devote all my time to school, so I could really focus on my education.

Is there anything else you’d like to share?

I would not be the artist I am today without the faculty of the department of theatre, dance, and motion pictures, and I am so grateful for their guidance and teaching.


ARTSGALA would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.
