  Theatre and Dance alum, Drew Nellessen ('07), who is currently appearing in the National Tour of Chicago, made a recent stop in Decatur between engagements in St. Louis and Peoria.  Drew met with senior musical theatre majors to discuss a variety of industry related topics and later taught a Fosse master class to students enrolled in Theatre Dance and upper level Jazz and Ballet classes.   During his visit Drew impressed upon the students how well prepared he felt upon entering the industry and how valuable his Millikin education has been to him. 

Drew has had an impressive career since graduation.  His current gig marks his third time out with the national tour of Chicago.  He has also appeared as Diesel and Riff in the international tour of West Side Story and served as the performing dance captain for the recently revised production of Good News at the prestigious Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut. 

The Department of Theatre and Dance would like to thank Drew for so generously giving back to Millikin through his time, talent and insight.
