CMT releasing Memory Lane series
Introducing our next project: Memory Lane.
As we prepare to return to live theater later this year, Memory Lane is an opportunity to reminisce about more than 57 years of Cincinnati Music Theatre history. The episodic video series features interviews with CMT members and clips from more than half a century of past shows.
Episode 1 premieres at 7 p.m. Monday, June 28, on the CMT YouTube Channel. Join us in the video comments to share your favorite CMT memories.
Stay tuned for additional information on Episodes 2 and three, both coming soon.
CMT doubles scholarships
Cincinnati Music Theatre recently awarded four $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to study the theatrical arts in college.
CMT has offered single scholarships in both performance and technical theater for years, but the CMT board decided to approve two scholarships in each category this year.
In performance, the winners included Jonah Sorscher from Indian Hill High School and Micah Day from Turpin High School.
Sorscher will attend the Harvard-Berklee Dual Degree Program, majoring in a joint concentration of BA in Theater, Dance and Media at Harvard while simultaneously pursing a Master of Music in Musical Theatre Writing at Berklee. Day matriculates to Elon University, majoring in Musical Theatre.
In technical theater, the winners were Eva Schramm and Jordain Addis, both from the School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
Both technical winners plan to major in stage management, Schramm at the University of North Carolina School for the Arts, Addis at DePaul University.
CMT Scholarship Program Chair Kathy Kramer contacted more than 60 Tri-State high schools with information about the scholarship and application process and received about 20 applicants. Because of the COVID-19 crisis – rather than the traditional in-person auditions and interviews – performance applicants made video submissions and technical applicants submitted portfolios.
Performance judges included Judges: Arlene Balczo, Marie Kramer Arntsen and Sean Hurley, while technical judges were Julie Beelman and Mike Meuche.
