Theater Arts & Dance Alum Rosemarie Kingfisher
September 18, 2020

The Sonoma State Theatre Department provided me with the most amazing foundation for creating opportunities for myself as an actor in the Bay Area. I felt absolutely lost in my junior year when graduation became more of a reality. I was a first generation Native American college student– I didn’t know what I wanted to do, I only knew that I had chosen an acting major to study for 4 years because I loved theatre. The Theatre Department held me through incredibly traumatic events that I was victim to at SSU. Person Theatre and Ives are where I felt safe; I am forever grateful for the faculty that continue to be mentors and support me in my career today.
