Showcasing your talent. Developing professional connections.

Each year Missouri State holds two live showcases, one in New York and one in Los Angeles. In response to COVID-19, the 2021 Showcases will be streamed online for audiences across the nation, then made available for an extended viewing period for industry on a digital platform powered by All Together Now.

At these two virtual events, you can see our talented, prepared, and marketable students from both the Acting program (April 21) and the Musical Theatre program (April 22). Our showcases are open to industry professionals (including agents, managers, casting directors, directors, and producers) as well as all Missouri State alumni.
