For one night only the Sophomore Showcase performance entitled, “Hello Chekhov!  IX” will be paired with the Freshman Showcase performance of contemporary scenes.


The Sophomore Showcase is a collection of scenes taken from Chekhov plays performed by our sophomore BFA Acting and Musical Theatre majors.  This year’s showcase will feature selections from “The Three Sisters,” “Ivanov,” “The Sea Gull,” and “The Cherry Orchard.”


The Freshman Showcase is comprised of scenes from modern American realism plays performed by our freshman BFA Acting and Musical Theatre majors. Some featured selections include excerpts from “Rabbit Hole” by David Lindsay-Abaire, “Angels in America” by Tony Kushner, and “The Shape of Things” by Neil LaBute. Each year, a new version of the showcase is created to highlight the training and display the talents of the incoming freshman class of actors.
