Each year the graduating class of music theatre majors participate in a three-day industry intensive event in New York City, which includes a showcase performance for major agents and casting directors from Broadway, television and film, and an opportunity to meet and network with the incredible ASU alumni working in the theatre industry. This integral educational opportunity is viewed as an essential component of their training.
"The ASU Music Theatre Showcase in New York City truly changed my life in many ways. For the week we were there, my peers and I got to perform for some of NYC's top industry professionals. From our actual showcase where I was able to perform and eventually sign with a NYC agency that I love, to taking multiple workshops with NYC casting directors, directors, and agents- the ASU Showcase week truly pushed me to be the best performing artist that I can be. Being able to have a showcase in NYC allows students to truly learn the most up to date information because we are learning from some of the industry's biggest casting agencies, agents, and directors. I will never forget the multitude of information and knowledge I gained from our showcase week in NYC.
My life and career path was also completely changed by having our NYC Showcase. Right after showcase, I was able to sign with Bloc Agency, a top NYC agency, who was able to get me auditions and callbacks for two brand new Equity National Tours. All because of ASU's NYC Showcase, I signed with Bloc Agency and am now prepping to open in the First National Tour of "Frozen" the musical performing in the Ensemble and Understudying Princess Elsa. Thanks to Arizona State, our generous donors, and the Musical Theatre NYC Showcase, I am now a working Equity actress and am living my dreams performing all over the United States in a National Broadway Tour!
The Arizona State MT Showcase in New York City is truly a life-changing week for ASU's Musical Theatre students. I am so grateful to have been able to attend our 2019 NYC Showcase, and am so excited for the class of 2020 to take NYC by storm! Go Sun Devils!
