“Upper West Side Story” directors Hannah Schwartz and Emma Kirby help actors with lines and blocking. Gwyn Seward, sophomore, who plays the role of Meredith, says a key to acting is to “Get in tune with your emotions, even if it is difficult, pull past experiences even if they are sad, or they make you angry, or really happy. But if you have those pulled up then you can apply them to different [acting] situations. Be in touch with who you are.”
