NYC casting director prepares theatre students for auditionsPosted June 11, 2013
This spring, students from ACU’s Department of Theatre received firsthand feedback from a New York casting director through the university’s connection to the Tepper Semester Program. A film-casting workshop hosted on ACU’s campus gave students experience working with casting professionals in a small group setting.

“The workshop gave our students a little taste of what it might be like at future casting auditions,” said Adam Hester, chair of the department. He added, “Working with these professionals helps students realize that casting professionals aren't scary.”
The Tepper Semester is a partnership with Syracuse University’s Department of Drama, which gives students the opportunity to live and study in New York City for a semester. The program allows students to be fully immersed in the New York theatre environment while receiving instruction from Broadway professionals and Tony-Award-winning instructors.
“This connection with the Tepper program is vital for our students,” said Hester. “They can receive a Christian education while also learning to be competitive in the theatre marketplace.”
