First Year Showcase

This year's theatre component uses interview excerpts from the 1974 book "Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do" by author Studs Terkel. This Pulitzer Prize winner was later turned into a Broadway musical. The First Year Student Showcase has an overlaying theme of "working 9 to 5," and the show begins with loud industrial, mechanical noises and the opening of Whitman's poem "I Hear America Singing."

Faculty members Trimella Chaney, Rebecca Keeter and Rebecca Quin direct this collaborative production.

The dance component of the showcase will feature six original pieces that tie to the "Working" theme, choreographed by faculty members Tandrea Carter ("Moonlit") and Holly Roark ("Out-er Space") along with upperclassmen Dana Edwards ("Change of Heart"), Emma Holland ("Finale" from "Nine to Five"), Lydia Murrah ("Unity") and Emily Smart ("Portraiture").
