Shreya Muju is living proof of the combination of a solid work ethic plus talent will get you. Shreya is a 2019 graduate of Rock Ridge High School’s Thespian Troupe 8104 in Ashburn, Virginia. She was the 2019 winner of the Educational Theatre Association’s Amy Bennett Musical Theatre Scholarship, funded by the Amy Bennett Foundation.

Shreya says the most important lesson she’s learned from her directors is: Talent will only take you so far. A solid work ethic is where you truly find growth. Today, Shreya is a student at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) working toward a BFA in Acting. She continues to rely on her solid work ethic to shine in theatre just like she did in mathematics and other academic pursuits.

Keep learning and keep growing your craft. Workshops and festivals are ideal places to network and hone your skills. This year’s  International Thespian Festival is happening in person in 2022 at Indiana University! It’s a great time to be among your theatre-loving peers and others in the International Thespian Society.
