The School of Dramatic Arts welcomed parents and family members to campus Oct. 6-9 for a weekend full of panels, activities, and the opportunity to see what their students have been working on in the classroom and on the stage this school year.

Parents were invited to experience Voice-Over Acting with Phil Allen & Vicki Lewis, dive into The Actor’s Instinct with John DeMita, learn about new opportunities available through New Media and the Performer with Rob Adler, and even had the chance to step into their children’s shoes in a workshop of Theatre Games and Traditions. After a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, parents and students were then able to go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the set, the Bing Theatre, and other facility spaces that were utilized to help the show come to life.
