Launch the Class Helps Fund the Showcase and Career Development Tour in Seattle and Los Angeles

Our graduating actors tackle a lot of challenges during their third year. One of the biggest is developing a showcase designed specifically for agents and casting directors in Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York. Each actor’s three years of training and experience must be distilled down to a three-minute performance that will capture the attention of industry gatekeepers. The showcase often provides them with their first opportunity to show the wider world what they’ve got. In this definitive, high-stakes moment, it means so much for our actors to know that you, our Launch the Class supporters, have their backs and are rooting for them to go out there and shine.

Our Actors are Entrepreneurs

They start businesses, take risks, and make bold leaps, all because they believe in the power of stories. 

The School of Drama has trained professional actors for over 40 years, equipping them with the skills, tools, and sensibilities to be outstanding theatre artists. Our Professional Actor Training Program (PATP) is at the forefront of theatre practice around the country. After three years of study, our students leave with an MFA in acting and the ability to work comfortably and effectively in all forms of media. 
The Launch the Class program enables our students to participate in career entry activities that include showcase performances in Los Angeles and Seattle, and workshops with New York casting directors. Your investment helps cover the costs of food, housing, transportation, resumes, headshots, film reels, promotional materials, and performance space fees.

Join us in launching the careers of our next generation of theatre artists.
