Strategy: Position the School of Drama as a conservatory that encourages students to learn how to produce their own work, instead of waiting for work to come to them.
Excerpt: Moving to New York City after graduation is a well-documented pilgrimage for many UNCSA alumni, and there’s an extensive network of Fighting Pickles waiting to welcome them. 2014 School of Drama graduates Mike Labbadia, Gus Halper and Maddie Meigs live and work in NYC, where they co-founded Produced by Actors to pursue meaningful projects that showcase their creativity, skill and resourcefulness.
