UNCSA designers and technicians offer a glimpse into backstage world of arts and entertainment

Graduating seniors in the School of Design and Production (D&P) at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts will present their first ever public Senior Portfolio Review from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 29 at the Stevens Center in downtown Winston-Salem.

Artists who design and execute the scenerypropertiescostumeswigs and makeupsound and lighting for campus performances and the entertainment industry will be on hand to discuss their creative process. Sketches, renderings, diagrams and models will be on display, said D&P Dean Michael J. Kelley.

“This might be your last chance to see the work of these talented artists here in Winston-Salem,” Kelley said. “The next time you see their work, it could be on Broadway, at the Metropolitan Opera or a major theme park.”

D&P expects to award 15 Master of Fine Arts and 50 Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees at the university’s 51st annual commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 6. Graduates typically record a 96 to 98 percent employment rate in their disciplines within months of graduation. Alumni have worked with organizations including Cirque du Soleil, Blue Man Group, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Berkeley Ballet Theatre, Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre and The Walt Disney Company.
