NYC Showcase of Student Talent
Since 1994 Theatre faculty and students from throughout the CSU system have come together at the end of the academic year to provide a weeklong intensive learning environment in New York City for approximately 15-20 students and 3-4 faculty from each campus.
We present shows in an Off-Broadway theatre venue (i.e. Producers Club Crown Theatre; Sargent Theatre); take workshops led by NYC professional theatre artists (i.e. in acting, voice, movement, mask, commedia, auditioning, etc.); tour graduate and professional schools (i.e. Juilliard, Stella Adler Studio, HB Studio, Atlantic Theatre Company, and The Neighborhood Playhouse), Broadway theatres (i.e. backstage tours), theatrical design houses (i.e. Rosebrand Fabrics), theatre libraries and bookstores (i.e. Lincoln Center Performing Arts Library and the Drama Bookstore) and other appropriate theatre venues. We meet with professionals in the field through lecture/demonstrations, classes, panel discussions and talkbacks with actors, directors, designers, playwrights, talent agents, casting directors, stage managers, producers, and others working in NYC – some of whom are CSU alumni! Of course, we also attend Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.
The next NYC Showcase of Student Talent will take place in May 2015!
