BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Harper College
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, BWW heads to Palatine, Illinois, to spotlight The Department of Speech and Theatre at Harper College! Offering an Associate of Arts Degree in Theatre, students enrolled at Harper's Speech and Theatre program can take an assortment of performing arts classes that include introduction and advanced acting, stagecraft, general theater studies, and musical theater, in addition to the public speaking courses offered via the Speech department.
An ecclectic production season is at the core of Harper's academic year with students involved in all production and performance aspects, often selling out shows and receiving wide acclaim for high-calibre productions. In recent years, the department has produced such shows as 'The Diary of Anne Frank', 'Hamlet', 'Evita', 'Rent', 'As You Like It', and 'Enchanged April'.

Tickets are still available and you can purchase them online or by calling 847.925.6100.
