Throughout the year, TheatreTCU invites guest artists to visit their program and interact with our students in several ways.
Some interact with our students through their regular classroom environments as well as select students being invited to participate in master classes. Guests artists have included Susan Egan, Schuler Hensley, Shirley Jones and James Still.
Often guest artists are professional designers who are invited to collaborate on our productions. These guest artists work within our production studios along with our staff and students to execute their designs. Guest designers have included Sean Urbantke (Set Design, Urinetown the Musical), Chelsea M. Warren (Costume & Puppet Design, Seussical the Musical), Emily Waecker (Costume Design, The Beaux’ Stratagem), Meredith Hinton (Costume Design, Urinetown the Musical, Closer Than Ever, Holiday, and Spring Awakening) and Lloyd Cracknell (Costume Design, Guys & Dolls).
Students can also expect to work with professional music directors, musicians, and choreographers throughout their time here at TCU. The professionals we work with also work with theatre companies such as Casa Manana, Lyric Theater, and Dallas Theater Center as well as the Fort Worth Symphony.
