Bryce Pitts is a sophomore majoring in Foreign Language at GHC and is set to graduate in May. She is president of Georgia Highlands’ acting troupe, the GHC Players.

According to Pitts, the GHC Players gives students a “way to express their creativity through the creative arts, whether that is through acting, singing or dancing.”

Pitts has a strong theatrical background. She has been acting since she was four years old. Her first experience with acting happened in Rome, Ga., through Creative Playhouse, a children’s theatrical club.

She attended high school at Darlington, where she continued pursuing her art.

Her involvement with performing arts did not end after high school. She ended up working for Disney for five years as a performer, being a part of various parades and shows during her five-year stint.

Pitts said that she has been in over fifteen shows throughout her career, and that she has also been involved in professional community theater.

She has most recently been involved with the world premiere of the musical “MANopause” at the Canton Theater, which premiered there this past May.

The play was written in Georgia, and according to Pitts, she originated the role of Tiffany.

She is currently interning for The Callback Company, an audition prep company that helps people get ready for auditions and professional jobs. Pitts explained that the company helps performers get “their whole package together.”

Julie Carver, adviser of the GHC Players and owner of The Callback Company, said, “I think the school is just very lucky to have a student like Bryce, who has the passion, but also the know how to get it done.”

Along with her involvement with the Players, Pitts is also vice president of membership for Phi Theta Kappa.
