alum discusses theater with high school studentsThe music and theater classes at Mohonasen High School welcomed a special alumni visitor on March 18. Graduate Ryan Dickson, who had been a member of the Mohonasen orchestra since third grade and fell in love with theater as a member of the pit orchestra and as a student director, came to talk about his experiences since high school.

Dickson  went to Ithaca College and majored in theater management/business. He is now working in Manhattan for Roundabout Theater Company, which is responsible for several Broadway musicals and plays.

Dickson spoke to students about his personal experience, his internships and more. He shared with MHS students knowledge about his major and how students have more opportunities for careers in theater and the arts than they might think. Dickson is a success story for our district to be really proud of.
