"Before I started this program, I was really shy and not very confident when it came to being on stage. Thanks to the patience and encouragement of Jason Pasqua, I was able to break out of my shell and grow, not only as an actor, but as a person as well. Some of my fondest memories are on that stage; it really is like being home."
"The LCCC Theatre Program, and most specifically Jason Pasqua, have been the beginning of my career as a professional producer and director. Jason gave me the start I needed, and had the confidence to give a young director with a vision a chance. From my start at LCCC I have built a theatre company from the ground up. I learned more in the LCCC Theatre Program than I learned at any other institution, and the opportunities I was given were incredibly important to my growth both as an artist and a person. I will always thank Jason and the program for providing me with all the amazing opportunities and experiences."
"I wouldn't be the actor/person I am today if it wasn't for this program. I started off as a psychology major but my heart was always drawn to performing. Jason Pasqua is a passionate and patient instructor that allowed me to just be me and make and explore art that I wanted to do in a small but welcoming space with some other dope artistic individuals. I continue my acting journey beyond LCCC theater department as I head to NYC next spring. Thank you for planting some early roots in my career. I miss that little black box."
