For Dominican alumna Renee Gros ’14, she is at home on the stage – whether performing before audiences on a cruise line or as guest speaker addressing the Drama Club during a return visit to her alma mater. During her senior year, Renee played matchmaker Dolly Levi in the school production of the musical, “Hello, Dolly!” In her talk to the Drama Club, she gave advice and insights about audition preparation, and shared her theatre experiences. Toward the end of her talk and taking questions, she entertained her audience, breaking out in song with, “When The Parade Passes By!”
After graduating in 2014, Renee attended Emerson College in Boston where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. Founded in 1880 by Charles Wesley Emerson as a “school of oratory,” the college offers more than three dozen degree and professional training programs specializing in the fields of arts and communication with a foundation in liberal arts studies. The college is one of the founding members of the ProArts Consortium, an association of six neighboring institutions in Boston dedicated to arts education at the collegiate level.
Renee’s career includes Theatre Specialist with the Jefferson Performing Arts Society; Producer with Good Coffee, Independent Film; Intern at DDO Artists Agency where she assisted the LA and NY voice-over departments; and House Supervisor with ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage.
