CCM’s Department of Drama presents the 2012 Senior Showcase at 2 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28, in CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater.
Graduating seniors in CCM’s drama program will present a variety of monologues and scenes to demonstrate the depth and breadth of their acting skills, honed during their undergraduate training at CCM. The performance is a local preview before the students travel to New York and Los Angeles, where they will present the showcase for agents and casting directors.
Following the 7 p.m. showcase, Drama Department Chair Richard E. Hess will host the 10th annual Dolly Awards ceremony—named for drama department supporter Dolly Cohen—which recognizes students for their outstanding achievements and performances throughout the year. Awards are given for Excellence in Performance and Excellence in Ensemble Performance for recent department productions, including: Our Town, Red Light Winter, Coram Boy, In the Next Room, The Vibrator Play and the 2012 TRANSMIGRATION Festival of Student Created New Works. The highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Julia Winter Cohen Career Excellence Award to CCM alumnus Dominic Bogart (’00 BFA Drama).
