- Currently, students are being offered their WCSPA instruction in a remote environment using the Schoology platform and video sessions on WebEx.
- As part of their virtual programming, WCSPA has produced two streamed performances–a video showcase with Level One and a radio play with the upper level students–and has plans for performances for second semester that will largely depend on COVID-19 safety protocols.
- Students have continued to receive top flight dance instruction during this time and have had the opportunity to learn sound editing, voice acting, basic sewing skills, lighting design, and costuming using recycled objects and non-traditional materials among other exciting offerings.
- Additional activities this year have included a virtual Thespian Festival where students participated in workshops with industry and Broadway professionals, and where senior students were offered more than $2,390,000 dollars in theatre scholarships from colleges in Michigan and elsewhere, an alumni drop in day where past graduates from both sides of the Atlantic came to talk about their experience since leaving the program, and socially distanced shop calls during periods when limited in-person gathering was allowed.
- Despite the inherent challenges involved in producing theatre during a pandemic, WCSPA staff and students have reframed these barriers as an opportunity to innovate and diversify our content using exciting new technologies.
