Dallas Theater Center presents 2014 Skokos Learning Lab Showcase
Dallas Theater Center will host the fifth annual Skokos Learning Lab Showcase, the culmination of the Ted and Shannon Skokos Learning Lab collaboration between DTC and Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
DTC and BTW formed the collaborative partnership when DTC moved into the Wyly Theatre in 2009 and the students participating in this year’s showcase were freshman when the program began. Twenty seniors from the theater cluster at BTW will perform alongside nine professional adult actors, all members of DTC’s Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company.
The one-hour performance features the student and professional actors performing scenes from contemporary and classical plays. The showcase is the final project for the year-long Advanced Acting Class at the high school; a college level master acting class team-taught by BTW teacher Charlton Gavitt, DTC resident actor and master teacher Christie Vela and additional members of the acting company.
