National Leader in Performing Arts Training Celebrates 15 Years of Discovering & Training Top Talent
Victoria— The Canadian College of Performing Arts (CCPA) is looking to top a very successful 2011 season with a new round of national auditions and large-scale 15th anniversary celebrations.
“Students who earn a spot at the College this year will be a big part of our commemoration,” says CCPA College Director Ron Schuster. “This past year we challenged our students with nationally renowned instructors and directors, tremendous performance opportunities and a rich and rewarding outreach program.
Highlights of the 2011-12 season include(d):
Mounting stellar productions guest-directed by veteran Stratford Director Darcy Evans and Stuart Aikins, Casting Director of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Eclipse and the recently released Breaking Dawn.
Long-awaited return performances with the Victoria Symphony featuring suites from South Pacific, Footloose and Ragtime. Collaborations with Jacob Richmond, the creative force behind this year’s acclaimed national touring production of Ride the Cyclone.
Workshops and Master classes with Artistic Directors like Michael Shamata, of the Belfry Theatre and guest instructors like Richard Lucas of Lucas Talent Agency.
Continued success by CCPA alumni in earning top-contracts in theatre and musical theatre productions across the country and around the world (see attached Where Are They Now).
CCPA’s national tour goes from February 4 to March 3 and includes stops in Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna and Vancouver. Video auditions are also accepted until May 1. The tour includes the New Horizons Scholarship given for Most Promising Overall Audition Performance.
