Tepper Semester to Hold Free Introductory Workshops for Drama Undergraduates April 1

Undergraduate drama students from any college or university are invited to learn more about the Department of Drama’s Tepper Semester program in New York City via a series of free in-person and virtual introductory workshops on Saturday, April 1.

The Tepper Semester offers undergraduate students in advanced levels of acting, directing, musical theater, playwriting, casting, design, dramaturgy, producing, stage management and theater management the opportunity to immerse themselves in a rigorous artistic training program in the culturally rich setting of New York City. The program is open to Syracuse University drama students as well as drama students from other colleges and universities.

Taught by Tepper Semester faculty, the workshops offer a glimpse into typical topics found in the curriculum and are intended to expand the program’s existing network of affiliated students. Included are “Musical Theatre Audition” with Daisy Prince (in person and virtual), “Camera Acting Audition” with Paul Davis (virtual), “Directing” with Bixby Elliot (in-person and virtual) and “Casting” with Erica Jensen and Stephanie Klapper (virtual). In-person sessions will be held at the University’s Fisher Center.

Interested students must fill out the online application by Saturday, March 4 at noon ET. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by Friday, March 10. Members of the University community are encouraged to share this opportunity with colleagues at other institutions.
