Looking to Next Year As Summer Arrives
2012-13 is one for the history books, which means it's time to look to next year. There is an exciting group of students set to join the Conservatory this coming fall. We have a wonderful season set as well. The fall productions will start with Alice in Wonderland. The main stage show will be The Country Wife, followed by Smokey Joe's Cafe. Spring opens with an exciting new adaptation of House of Spirits. The senior capstone will be Reckless followed by a devised piece. We will close out the season with Into The Woods. We look forward with anticipation to the new incoming class and the 2013-14 season.
Los Angeles Showcase
The senior performance majors have successfully raised the money needed for the Los Angeles Showcase. They will fly out on Monday May 13 and will hold the showcase at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank on Tuesday May 14 at 7pm. This west coast showcase tradition was initiated by students several years ago and has proven to be a big success ever since. Besides being seen by industry professionals, the graduates get to see the city and to meet with alums who call LA "home".
