Boston Conservatory Theater Department
To Present Senior Showcase

The Theater Division at The Boston Conservatory has become renowned for training students in all elements of theater performance. Theater training at The Conservatory focuses on helping students achieve professional readiness, which means that learning about the business of the entertainment industry becomes as important an element as artistic and technical training.

Since 1997, the Theatre Division has organized a Senior Showcase to allow graduating seniors to perform before agents, casting directors, choreographers and other theater professionals in New York. 
This year's Senior Showcase, directed by faculty members Fran Charnas and Bret Silverman, will  be presented in both Boston and New York.  The local performances, free to the public, are scheduled to take place at The Boston Conservatory Theater, 31 Hemenway Street in Boston on Tuesday, May 1, at 7 & 9 p.m.   The Manhattan showcase will take place Thursday, May 3 at 2 & 6 p.m. at the West Side Theater in New York City.  

Some 30 seniors will perform, hoping to become as lucky as alumni who have landed an agent or an audition as a result of Senior Showcases in the past.

Some of those students include Josh Grisetti ('04), who secured an agent after the 2004 Senior Showcase and is currently starring in ABC's "Knights of Prosperity;" Dan'yelle Williamson ('06) and Laura Pugliese ('06), who landed roles in the Chicago production of "Wicked;" Nick Adams ('05) who was cast in the new Boubill-Schonberg musical "Pirate Queen" (currently in previews on Broadway), as well as the touring and Broadway productions of "Chicago;" Bridie Carroll ('05) who landed a starring role in the North Shore Music Theatre production of "Hairspray;" and Ben Gettinger ('04) who was cast in the Broadway production of "Mamma Mia," in which he continues to appear along with fellow alumna Veronica Kuehn ('06).
