Posted on: Monday, November 2nd, 2015 by Leah Prater
The Emory & Henry College Department of Theatre is proud to announce a new record in the number of students to participate in the upcoming Southeastern Theatre Conference Professional Auditions. As part of the process, the students had to pass a preliminary audition at the Virginia Theatre Association (VTA) conference on October 23 and 24. Of nine students who participated in the VTA auditions, five will be passed on to attend the SETC conference in March.

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.
