Skidmore Alumni

We at the Skidmore Theater Department are extremely proud of all of our alumni. We are particularly proud that a majority of our students pursue successful careers in the performing arts as actors, directors, writers, designers, technicians. stage managers, teachers, producers, agents, etc. A good number of our graduates continue their training at some of the finest graduate programs and acting studios.

In addition to offering classes which help our students prepare for graduate school and professional careers (Senior Seminar and Audition Workshop), in 2007 we will be holding a New York City showcase for our senior actors.
