Our senior ensemble, the “Class of 2019,” is quickly approaching the end of our training at the UNCSA School of Drama... which means that Artsbound 2019 is right around the corner!
“Artsbound” is a showcase production that includes scenes and songs collectively designed to showcase each actor’s unique talents. We will be presenting a series of these showcase productions in April to industry professionals, such as agents, directors and casting directors in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. This is an incredible opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to industry professionals and to launch our careers. Over the past two years, Artsbound has resulted in over forty actors signing with top agents, and many landing their first jobs right out of school!
However, it costs a large sum for us to take Artsbound to these cities. As a class we have hosted yard sales, held bake sales, staged a 70’s themed cabaret and sold concessions at all UNCSA Drama productions in an effort raise the money needed for booking the venues and making travel arrangements. These fundraisers have helped us out immensely, but ultimately they only provide about half of our projected expenses.
That’s why we are reaching out to people like you, who have supported and believed in us, as we work to bridge the gap between our dreams and reality.
We invite you to make a tax-deductible donation to Artsbound 2019. Give online (choose the designation “Other” and type “Artsbound 2019”), or checks can be made out to “UNCSA Foundation” (with “Artsbound 2019” on the memo line), and mailed to:

All the best,
UNCSA School of Drama Class of 2019
