Palm Beach Dramaworks

West Palm Beach's only resident professional theatre, Palm Beach Dramaworks, is proud to announce its inaugural "Emerging Artists Showcase" featuring Dreyfoos School graduating senior class students, on Tuesday, June 15th (7PM) and Wednesday, June 16th (2 & 7PM) at their intimate downtown theatre (322 Banyan Boulevard). All tickets are $15. Student actors will be performing monologues, scenes, and songs, from popular shows and tech students will run elements of the showcase production including lights and sound. Members from the South Florida theatre and film community are encouraged to attend and support South Florida's newest generation of performers and designers. The Emerging Artists Showcase is another example of Palm Beach Dramaworks' continued association with West Palm Beach's acclaimed Dreyfoos School of the Arts. Throughout the school year, the theatre company provides internship and special programming opportunities for theatre students, and Dramaworks senior staff members mentor students and teach master classes. "The Dreyfoos School of the Arts is a gem in our community, and having spent time with their students this season, I've been most impressed by their talent and enthusiasm, and encouraged for the future of the arts," stated Dramaworks' Artistic Director William Hayes. "Palm Beach Dramaworks welcomes the opportunity and takes seriously the responsibility to foster these talented young artists, and we are excited to present them to the community." The goal in presenting the program is to give these students exposure to various arts organizations and institutions, and to introduce their talent to the community at large. Performance times are as follows: Tuesday, June 15th (7PM) and Wednesday, June 16th (2 & 7PM). Individual tickets may be purchased for $15 each. Ticket purchases can be made by calling the box office at (561) 514-4042, open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, or by visiting our website at www.palmbeachdramaworks.org.
