VPA NEWS and UPDATES!
Theatre Major Accepted into National Theatre Institute
Junior Theatre/PGS Major Travis Milliman has been accepted into the prestigious National Theatre Institute. This highly selective program receives hundreds of applications every year from college students around the country, only accepting between 10 to15 students per semester to participate in the rigorous intensive training at the O'Neill Theatre Center in Connecticut and at the Moscow Art Theatre in Russia. Milliman is the second Le Moyne theatre student to receive this honor, following Rhiannon Williams who was accepted and attended the program in 2012.
Work first performed at the O'Neill has gone on to regional theaters, Broadway, film, and television. Students and professionals who have honed their skills at the O'Neill can be seen in these venues every day across the nation and world. Staff and alumni from the O'Neill have won every major award in theater arts. The O'Neill itself is the recipient of two Tony® Awards, in 2010 for Regional Theatre, and in 1979 for Theatrical Excellence
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Le Moyne College believes that creative expression enhances awareness of the world around us and reflects the basic human search for meaning. We value the pursuit of artistic expression through its processes and forms as fundamental to the development of individuals and their communities.
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Le Moyne College provides all students opportunities for artistic engagement by offering instruction, participation in, and exposure to its component disciplines. The department inspires, challenges, and encourages students to combine creative and intellectual learning by communicating through the languages of art, music, theatre, and dance.
