To Raise Funds for LA Showcase

WINSTON-SALEM – “The Winter Cabaret: New Works Night” will be presented by the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) School of Drama college seniors (Studio IV) at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, in the Proscenium Thrust Theatre of Performance Place on the UNCSA campus, 1533 South Main St., Winston-Salem.

The musical cabaret will feature new songs that the seniors have written, as well as their renditions of popular songs.

The cabaret is being staged to raise money to send the graduating students – the Senior Drama Class of 2011 – to Los Angeles, where they will give a presentation to industry agents, casting directors, producers, etc., this coming spring. 

There is a suggested donation of $20. Tickets are not being sold through the UNCSA Box Office but will be available at the door. For more information, call the School of Drama at 336-770-3236.
