Showcasing your talent. Developing professional connections.
Industry professionals can catch a rising star
Each year Missouri State holds two showcases in New York and Los Angeles. Our students receive quality training through practical experiences and application of classroom teaching. You can see amazingly talented and prepared students in action at a showcase. Showcases are open to all professionals in the arts industries, especially casting agents, directors and producers.
The BFA Acting Los Angeles Industry Showcase is held yearly in spring. Graduating BFA Acting students perform for industry professionals and Missouri State alumni. Networking opportunities take place at a reception following the showcase. While in Los Angeles for the showcase performance and networking, the students also participate in several days of scheduled workshops/master classes with noted industry professionals and successful MSU alumni.
As a senior in the musical theatre program, you can take center stage at a showcase in New York City. The musical theatre showcase experience features auditions and workshops with industry professionals. Students also have opportunities to perform in cabaret venues, often with professional alumni of the program. Alumni events are held in conjunction with showcase weekend. The showcase experience provides you with additional networking and career exploration opportunities in New York City.
