Event Description

Palm Beach Dramaworks and the Dreyfoos School of Arts Theatre Department have joined forces

 

to present the Third Annual Emerging Artists Showcase May 1, 2012 at 2:00 and 7:00pm in the Don & Ann

 

Brown Theatre at 201 Clematis Street in West Palm Beach.  Tickets are $15.00 and are available at

 

561-517-4042, www.palmbeachdramaworks.org or the Brown Theatre Box Office.

 

 

The Emerging Artists Showcase is a unique partnership between a professional, regional theater

 

and a secondary school theatre program.  Its purpose is to present selected graduates from the AW Dreyfoos

 

School of Arts Theatre Program to the South Florida theatre/film community.  The showcase

 

is directed by Kenneth Kay (a Carbonell award-winning director and former Producing Artistic Director of

 

the Blowing Rock Stage Company, North Carolina) in collaboration with Beverly Blanchette (Dreyfoos Theatre

 

Dean/Acting Director) and Bruce Linser (Dreyfoos Music Theatre Director).  The showcase includes songs,

 

scenes, and monologues from popular, contemporary plays/musicals along with original works.  Audience

 

members will also be treated to a lobby display of student scenic/costume designs, design/technical portfolios,

 

and original art work.  Through this endeavor, the  Dreyfoos theatre students  experience, first hand, a

 

professional audition and rehearsal process.

 

 

It is the dream of Hayes and Blanchette that the Emerging Artists Showcase will be an annual event for

 

years to come.  At Palm Beach Dramaworks’ new home at the Don and Ann Brown Theatre, the Dreyfoos

 

Theatre Department graduates will perform in their first professional venue before embarking upon their college

 

and professional careers.
