The scene is like a fairy tale.
A beautiful young woman stands at the edge of a woods dressed in an emerald gown. She sings in a spellbinding soprano that could summon animals from the forest, break an evil curse or cast an enchantment across the land.
But this is not Cinderella in glass slippers at the ball. It’s a campus photo shoot with Elizabeth Curtin (ACCT ’15) in elegant green pumps, dodging deer droppings as gnats buzz in her face. Dressed in her witch costume from the just-finished student production of Into the Woods, she sings the haunting “Witch’s Lament” and gestures dramatically as the camera clicks. She is unwaveringly focused, gloriously confident and improbably professional.
