Wise Broadway Tour!

The Department of Theatre is excited to be finalizing arrangements for this year's Wise Broadway Tour!  In 2005, Theatre was fortunate to receive an estate gift from Robert O. Wise, who graduated from Iowa Stae Teacher's College in 1950.  This fund allows three students and a faculty chaperone to go to New York in August to see a number of Broadway shows and meet with theatre professionals in the city.  This year's recipients of the award, who are all Performance students, are Chelsea Clegg, Kenosha Carr and Rachel Russell, and Steve Taft will be the accompanying faculty member.  Their itinerary includes the following shows:

  • Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark
  • Catch Me if You Can
  • Memphis: A New Musical
  • War Horse
  • How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Congratulations to all of them!
