    LPAC Humanities Collaboration: Unpacked Home

    When: Nov 6 2013 - Nov 9 2013

    Where: Little Theatre

    Transforming the volunteer experience into theater, LAGCC, LPAC, and Kingsborough Community College (KBCC) collaborate with Actors Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP) to tell true stories from the homeless population. Students partner with shelter residents to devise stories, a theatre piece(s) based on their volunteer work and experience with the people they encounter on this journey.

    Artists Striving To End Poverty (ASTEP) connects performing and visual artists with underserved youth in the U.S. and around the world to awaken their imaginations, foster critical thinking, and help them break the cycle of poverty.

    The boot camp is made possible thanks to the generous support of Trinity Wall Street's Charlotte's Place.

    LPAC Humanities Collaboration: ''Almost, Maine'' by John Cariani

    When: Nov 20 2013 - Nov 23 2013
    Where: Black Box Theater

    Almost, Maine is not a coastal town. It is nowhere near the ocean and it doesn't exist. Almost, Maine is a mythical composite, an exercise on love and a beautiful romance. At times extremely funny and at times achingly sad. Seven bright stars of LaGuardia's theatre department tackle nineteen roles in bringing John Cariani's wonderful play to life.

    LPAC Humanities Collaboration: "Almost, Maine" by John Cariani, Directed by Garrett Neergaard, Black Box Theater (m122)

     Road to Broadway
    "Road to Broadway" Michael Rafter Master Class

    October 23rd, from 2:30-4:30 in the Little Theater


    Broadway conductor Michael Rafter (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jersey Boys) will be returning to coach our advanced vocal students in Broadway repertoire. Join us for an insider's view of the type of work that goes into training a Broadway singer and in rehearsing for a musical theatre performance.

    Our students sure could use all the good wishes and support as they brave the stage, battle their nerves, and sing their hearts out.
    Hope you'll be there for all the fun!
