"At Tisch, we are driven to find and educate the next generation of performing and cinematic artists," said Mary Schmidt Campbell, Dean of the Tisch School. "We are immensely proud of our alumni who comprise some of the world's foremost actors, directors, producers, and writers. We have great hopes and aspirations for the future of Tisch and it is thanks to the generous support of our parents, alumni and benefactors that we can pursue these goals."
The evening included a Red Carpet party in the Atrium and The Allen Room overlooking Central Park. Hosts for the evening were Dean Campbell and Gala co-chairs Patrice Auld '77 and Rosemarie DiLorenzo. Dean's Council members Chris Columbus '80 and Lorne Michaels serve as Honorary Chairs. The performance was directed by Matt Lenz and produced by Amanda Lipitz '02.
The night was a celebration of the honorees' accomplishments in the performing and cinematic arts and an opportunity for the Tisch community to gather, perform, and celebrate the accomplishments of the school and its dedication to educating the next generation of artists.
Proceeds from the evening will go toward Tisch student scholarships and other student needs at the Tisch School.
