Showcase Information

This year Showcase will be held at the beautiful historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday, May 30 and Thursday, May 31, 2018.  Showcase is designed to present a variety of group performances representing all three artistic disciplines (music, ballet, and theatre) and provide an inspiring professional experience for our students. The Orpheum is a wonderful space and ASA enjoys performing there.  We are continuing to make modifications so that our production will fit with the limited space backstage and the supervision capacity of the faculty.   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.  

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 2018 will be excused from school starting May 24, 2018. 

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. 

Tickets for the two performances go on sale at the beginning of May, 2018

Students will receive individual student schedules the week of May 1, 2018.  Please ask your student for this document.
