2014-15 Arts & Events Season
Thank you for helping us "raise the curtain" on another amazing arts and events season. Your presence is truly the catalyst for the success of our performances on William Peace University's campus and our vibrant season this year!
The 2014-15 season brings continued programmatic expansion supported by community partnerships, advertisers, ticket buyers and our internal company members from the William Peace Theatre, the William Peace University Singers, and more!
Since 2011 when WPU adopted the Bachelor of Fine Arts majors, our talented students, artists, actors, singers and dancers, as well as guest artists, have performed to rave reviews and sold out crowds. And, we hope you will be with us each step of the way this year to "pack our houses" for these talented, aspiring performers.
Of course, as season's change, so does our lineup of programs.
Thanks to WPU's Arts and Events Committee, made up of community members, students, faculty and staff, we are offering an extensive selection of theatre and musical theatre productions, guest speakers, a lunch and learn series, conversations, concerts, academic programming and more. We are also trying several new things, and we need your feedback.
Varying programs, prices and free options have been sprinkled together, and we want to know how we are doing. If you like a performance, tell us and don't be shy! It will help us make your WPU experience the best it can be. After all, our vision is to provide our students with a venue to share their talents alongside world-class artists, lecturers and musicians, and to give you, the audience member, something to come back for at William Peace University.
You asked, and we listened! With your feedback from last season, we have also found multiple ways for you to get involved this year. At each performance, you will find a sign-up sheet for volunteer opportunities, as well as a gift envelope in your program. Your support helps us provide future programming and renowned artists to campus. You can also contact me personally by email or by phone at 919.508.2362. Write it down... I want to hear from you!
Of course, we couldn't do any of this without the great support of our community partners: Sara Jo Allen Manning '58 '60 and the North Carolina Symphony, Duke Energy, First Citizens Bank and the many generous sponsors you'll see in our playbills this year, as well as each of you who have either attended a performance or made a gift.
We hope you will make WPU your arts destination this year!
