The “Map of the Stars” guides you to places where students - now leaders in the arts - have been. Just 50 years old, UNCSA has an impressive list of accomplished alumni who are shaping the arts and entertainment industry. Some return to UNCSA to speak and teach current students. Here are just a few stars on our map:
Just like all students in the School of Dance, ABT ballerina Gillian Murphy would get fittings for her student performances in the Dance Costume Shop. She has returned to work with students, perform for them and was the 2014 High School commencement speaker.
"Late Show with Stephen Colbert" saxophonist Eddie Barbash took high school academics and rehearsed in the practice rooms of Gray.
Filmmaker Jeff Nichols returned for the 2013 RiverRun International Film Festival to speak to Film students and conduct an intimate Q&A session in Babcock Theatre, one of the three theatres in ACE Theatre Complex.
