The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) has announced details for its 2013-14 Studio Series of opera, musical theatre, drama and dance productions.
This season's Studio Series includes eight exciting productions showcasing CCM's rising stars. The series opens in October with the newly re-imagined musical adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie and concludes in April with the irreverent Shakespearean/zombie mash-up Living Dead in Denmark.
This season's series includes a revival of the Tony Award-winning comedy classic Boeing Boeing produced in collaboration with the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center and a public reading of the new American opera Fellow Travelers, produced in collaboration with Cincinnati Opera as part of the Opera Fusion program.
Always innovative, CCM's 2013-14 Studio Series also includes the annual TRANSMIGRATION Festival of student-created new dramatic works and annual student choreographer's dance showcase. Emmanuel Chabrier's effervescent opéra bouffe L'étoile and the Tony Award-winning musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee round out this year's Studio Series.
With free admission and limited seating for all CCM-hosted performances, the Studio Series remains one of the hottest tickets in town. All Studio Series performances held at CCM are free and open to the general public, but reservations are required. Reservations can be made the week of each show by visiting the CCM Box Office in UC's Corbett Center for the Performing Arts or by calling 513-556-4183.
Parking is available in the CCM Garage (located at the base of Corry Boulevard off Jefferson Avenue) and additional garages throughout the UC campus. Please visit uc.edu/parking for more information on parking rates. For directions to CCM Village, visit ccm.uc.edu/about/directions.

Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she is an outcast who is bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she is at the mercy of her loving but cruelly overprotective mother. But Carrie has just discovered she has a special power and, if pushed too far, she is not afraid to use it. Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the musical version of Carrie has not been seen since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show's original authors have crafted a newly reworked and fully re-imagined vision of this gripping tale. Recommended for mature audiences.
