New York Showcase


2018 Showcase Details and Roster

Every spring, a group of UA theatre students fly to New York to participate in a showcase known informally as Bama on Broadway. The showcase is designed to highlight the strengths of each student’s skill as they perform for an audience that includes Broadway talent agents and often ends with performers signing contracts or being called back for auditions.

Students prepare for the showcase by enrolling in a one-hour course designed specifically to ready them for the one-shot performance. In the course, which is offered the preceding fall semester, students work together to find, choose, and rehearse material that emphasizes each student’s individual strengths.

This year’s showcase will take place at the Studio Theatre at Theatre Row, located at 410 West 42nd Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues). Showcases will be held on Monday, March 12 and Tuesday, March 13 at 3 PM and then again at 6:30 PM.
