NYC Showcase of Student Talent

NYC Showcase of Student Talent

Eastern student headshots for the NYC Showcase at the Producer’s Club in NYC!

Starting in 1994, Professor Ellen Faith Brodie, Director of Theatre, facilitated Eastern’s NYC Showcase of Student Talent. Since then, Theatre students and faculty have come together at the end of the academic year to experience an intensive learning environment in New York City as well as to produce and present the showcase of Scenes, Songs, and Monologues.

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 Eastern alumni! Of course, we also attend Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.

The next NYC Showcase of Student Talent will take place in May 2017!
