Alumna Profile: Susanna Knowles
Back when I was trying to decide where to go to high school, I was understandably unsure what I wanted for my future. I knew numerous schools around town offered great magnet programs to help guide you on a career path, however, I was uncertain of what I could accomplish and how to fully harness my abilities. All I knew was that I loved art, and a whole program dedicated to just that seemed like the place to be.
For me, PCCA brought to the surface a passion for technical theater and I have been able to make a career out of that passion. I went on to get my BFA, MFA and apprentice at The Julliard School! Today I am working in the wig and makeup department at the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center, and honestly, I can track my success back to PCCA.
