"10 Audacious Tulane Student Leaders You Need to Know."
Since singing the national anthem at convocation in her freshman year, Hannah Elliot has spent her time in Tulane onstage performing for her fellow classmates. Now a senior studying theater and marketing, she has become the president of the Tulane Musical Performance Organization, the school’s only student-run music organization.
For the last two years, Elliot has held the responsibility of collaborating with student performers in their three cabaret performances, with varying themes such as “A Night of Disney!” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.” She currently seeks to expand the organization’s relevance with a new partnership with the Tulane University Performing Arts Society in their first ever musical collaboration. “Theater itself is a collaborative process—it never works well if you only have one person at the top,” Elliot said. “I really felt through my role in TMPO that I had to promote collaboration. The more voices you have, the better the outcome.” TMPO and TUPAS will collaborate on a production of Heathers: The Musical in November and December of 2018. Honey, what’chu waiting for?
