Theatre Career Expo Success Once Again!

The 6th Annual Theatre Career Expo at the Omaha Community Playhouse was a great success again this year! Over 200 students participated in five workshops and visited with twenty venues.

The Theatre Career Expo was created to connect drama theatre students and theatre career bound men and women with those currently in the profession. This includes those who work at universities, theatre businesses and theatres themselves. All venue participants are from Omaha and the Midwest region, including guests from South Dakota and Missouri. After visiting with these entities, participants are able to see the wonderful opportunities available to them “in our own backyard.”

The event also showcased workshops. The following workshops were presented: Sound; Louder is Not Always Better; Puppetry; Bunruku to Avenue Q; Dialects; Moving Light Magic and Scenic Painting: Magic in Front of Your Eyes.

Special recognition goes to the Theatre Arts Guild (TAG) of Omaha for providing partial funding of the event.

With such a great response and connections amongst the participants and students, we look forward to next year!
