FSU Theatre Senior Showcases

As one of the top 25 drama schools worldwide (as named by The Hollywood Reporter), 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 for students graduating from our highly acclaimed Music Theatre and Acting Programs. This year's LIVE  showcase performance will be held at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theatre on Monday, May 8 (Music Theatre). 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; 
  • Travel support for faculty and students; and
  • Rental of Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theatre for two live performances
