BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Coastal Carolina 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. ***
In this first installment of the BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight, BWW is proud to feature Coastal Carolina University located in Conway, South Carolina. Coastal Carolina University's Department of Theatre offers a BA in Dramatic Arts as well as a BFA degree with options in Acting, Musical Theatre, Physical Theatre, and Design & Technology. The school's notable alumni include Adam Roberts (Spider-Man on Broadway), Caroline Cuseo (National Tour of Legally Blonde: The Musical), Michael Kelly (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, The Adjustment Bureau) and Bailey Hank (Elle Woods in Broadway's Legally Blonde: The Musical). CCU's busy performance season began with 'Iphigenia and Other Daughers' (click here to see the productions photos) and rehearsals are underway for upcoming shows which will include 'Anything Goes, 'Lost in Yonkers', 'The Laramie Project', and many more. We invite you to visit CCU's profile page in the Student Center and click through the shows to see amazing poster art and photos for their upcoming productions.
