Here's a little ditty from our Billy Joel gig this past July at Summer at Sem Creative Arts, Kirby Center for the Creative Arts.

Theatre @ Summer at Sem 2019

Summer at Sem students with Broadway’s Nicole Van Giesen (Dear Evan Hansen, Fun Home, The Wild Party, Cabaret).

Talented and ambitious high school and middle school students, applications are now open and I'm proud to officially announce another incredible summer at Sem in our Creative Arts Theatre Program. Highlights include, the return of our main stage musical production with Stephen Schwartz's Pippin, and, a collaboration with our colleagues in dance and music on a celebration of the life and work of Billy Joel on the Kirby Center for Creative Arts stage.

Our knock out roster of 2019 Broadway guest artists include the incomparable Madge Dietrich, just off the First Broadway National Tour of Kinky Boots (who will share this stage with our Sem students!), and master teachers Charlie Gilbert and D'Arcy Webb just before the release of Charlie's book The SAVI Singing Actor! There may very well be a Sem alum or two taking the stage with our students as well.

And, I'm thrilled to welcome my dream team back, Spencer Hansen on faculty, and Cara Palombo as our TA/RA. You can find more details on online here.
