Senior Minoring in Costume Design
“I’m studying theatre because it has always made me happy. I feel this need to create and I’m never satisfied unless I’m making something new.”
Cheyenne worked in the costume shop for Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre this past summer and has an ideal plan for after she graduates.

Gabriel and Brooke Anderson
Gabriel Anderson holds advanced degrees from the leading interior design program at Utah State University. He was mentored by Jamie Drake and Vicente Wolfe, two of the design world’s top talents. In 2015, Gabriel and Brooke Anderson launched their furniture brand, Gabriel Dean Design. Sothebys called them “designers to watch” and indeed they have quickly gained recognition for their pieces which effortlessly inhabit the space between rigorous mathematical precision and almost whimsical freedom of form. In contrast, Brooke specializes in counseling and human behavior. She focuses on how people interact with and influenced by the spaces where they reside. Now Gabriel and Brooke are taking the same sensibilities that have made their furniture so successful and applying them to the field of interior design, with their new venture: Dean & Dahl. Architectural Digest’s 2018 Holiday House included Dean & Dahl’s spectacular children's room. Their furniture designs continue to be featured in prominent design magazines.
Freshman BFA Design/Tech
Lena Thurber is a Freshman in the BFA Design/Tech program this year.
“I love theater and always have! The way everything comes together in a wonderful production puts me in awe. I’ve done a wide variety of projects, specifically in the past year. I’ve directed small productions, choreographed, designed lighting, operated a sound board, and more, all for different productions!”
When she graduates, Lena would like to do whatever she wants in any area of theatre without regard towards making a living from it.
