BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Ball State University
Last year, BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theater website on the Internet, launched a comprehensive Student Database listing college and university performing arts programs across the country. This free service makes it easier for prospective students by showcasing programs searchable by schools, location, degrees and concentrations.
With the new school year in full gear, BWW has updated the fully-interactive Student Show Calendar with 2011-2012 student productions. We have also made it easy for schools to upload photos, videos, cast lists, articles and other media content for each of their shows. In addition, BWW will be combing through all content regularly and will launch weekly feature stories highlighting productions locally and nationally that have provided us with this extra content. ***
This week we are thrilled to announce Ball State University as BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight. Located in Muncie, Indiana, Ball State University offers Bachelor's degrees in Theatre and Dance, with options in acting, musical theatre, design and technology, production (directing and stage management), theatrical studies, and theatre education as well as a design and technology minor. Notable alumni of the school include Eric Emery, Bill Murphy, Scott Halberstadt and Ryan Woodle. Performance opportunities for theatre and dance students abound with the school's production department putting on a host of musicals, plays, and choreography showcases throughout the school year. Up next on the Ball State stage is Evil Dead: The Musical which begins its run on October 27 in the Strother Theatre. The busy performance season then continues with a wide offering including, 'Six Characters in Search of an Author', 'Lend Me a Tenor', 'Reasons to be Pretty', and 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. And make sure to check out the photos from their Fall production of 'The Circus in Winter' here!
Congratulations on being selected as BWW's School in the Spotlight, Ball State University!
