Of nine students who participated in the VTA auditions, five will be passed on to attend the SETC conference in March. This 56% rate of success far exceeds averages across the region and nearly doubles the department’s usual numbers. This is another exciting development for the department which continues to grow in size, scope, and rigor. These five students will join their peers with design and technical aspirations at SETC where they will be competing for employment at many nationally and internationally recognized performance venues.
This success is yet another excellent of example of the exciting things coming to the Emory & Henry College Theatre Department including new facilities housed in the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts and the newly instituted Bachelors of Fine Arts degree tracks in musical theatre, acting, directing and design. Congratulations to Isabella Ibanez, William Scott, Heather Whalen, Osama Ashour and Alissa Jones on this fantastic achievement.
