To My Fellow SoA Alumni,

As a graduate of the Columbia University School of the Arts MFA Acting Program, I have been fortunate enough to have had many extraordinary opportunities to practice the craft for which I was trained. Recently, I have returned to Columbia to help develop the professional preparation of the current third-year Acting class and to work with my fellow alumni to provide further opportunities in this endeavor.

As many of you know, the 2009 MFA Los Angeles Actors Showcase represents a critical juncture in the professional lives of these young artists.

I would like to call upon you to help support this class of amazingly talented actors. By attending one of this year’s showcase performances and bringing your colleagues, representatives, and/or fellow industry professionals, you can make a vital contribution to the success of this very important event.

Please do us the honor of coming out to support the 2009 Columbia University School of the Arts MFA Acting class by attending one of the showcases on May 4, 2009. Information regarding the 2009 Showcase and information on how to RSVP can be found below.

Thank you in advance for your support.
