Long-time Drama Professor Stephen Barker named Dean of the Claire Trevor School of the Arts
MFA in Acting Program:
The UCIrvine Santley Showcase - "UCI COAST-TO-COAST" - is performed each Spring in Los Angeles and New York City, featuring the MFA Acting and BFA Music Theatre graduates.
This Showcase was developed through a generous gift from the Helen Travers Santley Estate. It provides national exposure in America's two largest theatre markets while offering our graduates the opportunity to engage with casting directors, managers and agents on both coasts.
Last year, UCIrvine BFA & MFA actors received over 200 requests for interviews. As a result, our actors sign with top agencies and/or managers and begin professional careers upon completion of their degree programs.
