THE MUSICAL THEATRE EXPERIENCE at CCM is book-ended by showcases, a Freshman Showcase wich serves as a debut for the incoming class and a Senior Showcase which serves as a "Capstone" Experience. Each year the graduating class in Musical Theatre travels to New York to present a showcase for agents and casting directors. The work is created by the students themselves under faculty direction. The class selects a theme for the showcase, then blends musical numbers, narration and monologues into a cohesive whole. They create the musical arrangements, supply the choreography and staging, direct the scenes and are responsible for every aspect of the production.

The 2015 CCM Musical Theatre Showcase was performed in Cincinnati at the Patricia Corbett Theatre on March 26 and 28, and in New York at the Ailey Citigroup Theatre on April 7.

The Freshman Showcase

EACH YEAR the freshman class in Musical Theatre creates a showcase under faculty direction.

They create the musical arrangements, supply the choreography and staging and are responsible for every aspect of the production.

In 2015, the showcase, WonderLust, was performed in the Cohen Family Studio Theatre on April 4 at 4:00 and 8:00 p.m.

"The two best musical theatre programs in the country belong to the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and to the Boston Conservatory of Music. Each year, these schools’ industry showcases attract almost every agent and casting director in New York City. Their graduates probably have the highest employment percentage of any drama school, musical or otherwise, graduate or undergraduate."
