Evelyn Griffin, co-news and co-design editor

Evelyn Griffin is a junior, co-news editor and co-design editor for The Shield. She joined the staff her sophomore year because she loves news writing and was eager to be a part of such a talented, supportive and hilarious group of people who love newspaper, but, more importantly, doughnuts and terrible puns, just as much as she does. This year, she looks forward to making more memories with her fellow staff members and using her tremendous editing power to boss people around! When she is not writing or struggling with InDesign, Griffin plays tennis, reads, sings in choir, talks to her plants, listens to music, watches movies and spends time in nature.

Wigging Out
Sophomore Ava Grace Light-Whipple plays a banshee in Starmites, the McCallum Fall musical. She and the other banshees all wear large, colorful wigs that take a lot of time to perfect. “I have to braid my hair, and then pin it, and then pin on my wig cap, and then I ask the...costume crew to help me secure my wig and pin back the bangs and make sure it’s all ready to go.” It may take a while, but the results look great.

Marlee Foster is an ensemble member and the understudy of Eleanor/Bizarbara and Mother/Diva in the McCallum Fall musical, Starmites. She does very bright, elaborate eye makeup for every performance. When I asked why, she said,  “I took so long to do my eye makeup because when it comes to stage makeup, especially if you’re standing in the back, you want something about you to pop.” Photo by Evelyn Griffin.

Starmites is Hair-larious
“This hair gives me power!” For his character, S’up S’up Sensaboi in Mac Theatre’s production of Starmites, an 80’s sci-fi musical, Sam Richter gets his hair curled for every performance. He really loves it, and for good reason. It looks totally righteous. Photo by Evelyn Griffin.
