THE HAWKEYE

Celeste Allanach
Celeste Allanach is a senior at Urbana High School. She has been involved with the theater program for three years. She was drawn into the theater department as a sophomore because of the atmosphere in the “F-Wing”. The act of performing gave her a thrill, that made her return to for nearly every show since her first show, Footloose. Since her first show, she has performed as an interviewer in the one act 13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview, multiple characters in the one act Bad Ideas for Bad Television Shows, a hippie mother in The Customer is Always Wrong, Ms. Templewhite/Babs in Happy Daze, and Smitty’s understudy in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. She is taking her final bow on the Urbana stage playing Allana in our 2020 spring musical: Disney’s The Little Mermaid. When she is not performing on stage, you can still find her in the F-Wing. She has been on stage crew for our fall show this year and she has been involved with multiple choirs under the direction of Ms. Cosby.

In the fall, Celeste plans to attend Towson University majoring in Electronic Media and Film. She is choosing Towson because of the Hogwarts-like campus, with an amazing dining hall. More importantly, for her, is the fact that it has the best film program in the state of Maryland. With her degree in Electronic Media and Film, she plans to be a screenwriter and director. With her passion for theater, the arts, and writing, it is the perfect career for her. Her favorite class at Urbana was Creative Writing with Mr. Ward. This class gave her a taste of screenplay writing with the freedom to write whatever she wanted. She learned how to properly write a story with the specific mechanics that are required. She is excited to start her new chapter at Towson.
