Lyndsay Ricketson (09C) is quickly making a name for herself in Atlanta’s theatrical community, earning critical praise for her performance in the Alliance Theatre’s Next to Normal, a contemporary drama about a family’s struggle with the mother’s mental illness. She is currently appearing as Beth in the musical version of Little Women at Fabrefaction Theatre.

Describing herself as an “actress, singer and writer,” Lyndsay stays busy with rehearsals and guest vocal performances. She also teaches voice and musical theatre classes. Donors and scholarship students at Berry will remember her riveting performance of “For Good,” a song from the musical Wicked, at the 2012 Scholarship Night dinner.

Harry MusselwhiteSenior Lecturer and Director of Choral Activities Harry Musselwhite has long been known for the power of his voice. More recently, his skills as a filmmaker have made headlines. This summer, he branched out into an entirely new medium with the release of his children’s book and accompanying CD, Martin the Guitar, based on a campfire story he once told about instruments in a music store that come to life at night.

Like Musselwhite, Associate Professor and Director of Theatre John Countryman has been an artistic force on the Berry campus for many years. This fall, Countryman has found a new home – temporarily – as a Fulbright scholar and visiting professor at the National University of Ireland, Galway. In addition to the two seminars he is teaching, Countryman is also conducting research for a book-length history of the Druid Theatre Co., Ireland’s premier theatre ensemble, which is based in Galway. Not surprisingly, he’s also finding time to watch live theatre – lots of it – as he prepares to write an extensive review on the status of Irish theatre for the Irish Literary Supplement. Not to worry, though, he’ll be back at Berry in the spring!
