Broadway Bound: Webster Conservatory Seniors at New World Stage

| March 12, 2012

St. Louis to NYC: 12 Conservatory seniors head to Broadway for the annual Senior Showcase.

This week in New York City, 12 Webster University Conservatory of Theatre Arts seniors are demonstrating their talents to dozens of professional designers, directors, agents, and casting directors.

The “Senior Showcase” is a one-hour show featuring brief performances by each student at the New World Stages Theater in the heart of the theater district. Fifteen design, technical and stage management students also present their work at an open house to a group of theatre designers, technical professionals and graduate school representatives.

The Conservatory of Theatre Arts is a professional training program for acting, musical theatre, directing, design, technical theatre and stage management. Located in St. Louis, the Conservatory has been training theatre students for the professional world for more than half a century.

One of the distinguishing elements of Webster’s Conservatory is its integrated association with professional theatre companies, two of which are located on the St. Louis campus: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. Webster University also enjoys a one-of-a-kind association with a professional musical theatre, The MUNY.
