FSU School of Theatre presents a showcase of senior talent to agents in New York each year, through film reels and live performances. Your gift helps us promote these exceptional students and ensure they are the next stars of stage & screen.

As one of the top universities with alumni on Broadway (as named by Playbill), FSU students embark on their theatre careers with the backing of a nationally-recognized reputation. In addition to their intense training while in Tallahassee, School of Theatre works to provide our graduating students with a foundation to transition into the professional theatre world.


FSU's School of Theatre hosts our annual Senior Showcase in New York for students graduating from our highly acclaimed Music Theatre and Acting Programs. This year's Showcase performance will be held at the Florence Gould Theatre on Monday, May 8 (Music Theatre) and Wednesday, May 10 (Acting). Students perform in pairs, as a group and solo to highlight their talents in front of hundreds of agents, casting directors, and representatives from producing organizations. 

The Senior Showcase also provides an important opportunity to connect graduating students with alumni. Students stay with alums from the Music Theatre program while in New York City, then come together for networking and celebration at a post-performance reception.

Help these future stars of stage and screen launch their careers. Make a gift today! 

Your gift today will help us support:

  • Promotional materials created for and sent directly to agents and agencies in the New York City area and beyond; 
  • Travel support for faculty and students; and
  • Rental of Florence Gould Hall Theatre, distinguished in NYC by its intimate atmosphere, classic jewel-box theater décor, and location on 59th Street between Central Park and Park Avenue.
