With LiveRead@SDA, professional artists are invited to weeklong workshop residencies on the USC campus, where they can take bold steps to refining their work with access to a diverse talent pool. The School of Dramatic Arts provides the necessary resources and staff to produce a concert-style reading with professional photography and video of the performance. Additionally, these workshops afford the School’s students an invaluable opportunity to work with industry leaders – producers, directors, playwrights, lyricists, composers and choreographers – while gaining insights and practical experience in what it means to intensively workshop new musicals headed toward commercial production.
LiveRead@SDA is made possible with lead support from Lionel F. Conacher & Joan T. Dea, and Melissa Posen & Lawrence Hirschhorn.
Note: The LiveRead program is suspended for the 2020-21 year and is currently not accepting applications. Please check back in the spring of 2021 for updates.
