This year Showcase will be held at the beautiful historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday, May 31 and Thursday, June 1, 2017. Showcase is designed to present a variety of group performances representing all three artistic disciplines (music, ballet, and theatre) and providing an inspiring professional experience for our students. The Orpheum is a wonderful space and ASA enjoys performing there. In reviewing challenges from past years, we are making some modifications this year that will fit better with the limited space backstage, the supervision capacity of the faculty, and contribute to a better quality of experience for our students. ASA will produce two different shows to accomplish these goals and to preserve the spirit of the event - to capture our students' highest caliber of artistic accomplishment. Toward that end, Wednesday night will be a concert style performance, while the Thursday event will be a more collaborative and integrated show.
Some students may be participating in arts classes this year that do not perform in Showcase. To help families with their May schedules, we are providing a list of the groups performing at this time. Students that are not participating in Showcase 2017 will be excused from school starting May 24, 2017.
More information about the rehearsal schedule and purchasing tickets to the performance will be available soon. Please feel free to communicate with your student's arts teacher about any questions or concerns. We are excited about the collaborations for this year's Showcase. We hope you look forward to this exciting year-end event.
