Running March 8-10, this year’s TRANSMIGRATION festival will feature six original works from the CCM Department of Acting: Life Boat, God and Sheila, The Happiest People on Earth, The Harper Merman Project, Cliffhanger and The Land of Milk and Honey.

The festival grants CCM acting students the freedom to produce an entirely new show from start to finish. The teams, each made up of six students chosen at random, are tasked with writing, designing and producing a 25-minute piece of theatre all on their own.

TRANSMIGRATION productions are performed simultaneously and in non-traditional spaces throughout CCM’s Corbett Center for performing arts. Attendees may customize their personal theater-going experience by viewing up to four shows of their choice.
