Founded in 1975, Actors from the London Stage (AFTLS) is one of the oldest touring Shakespeare theatre companies in the world. They perform Shakespeare's plays with a very basic production, using minimal props, no set, and the actors never leave the stage. Each actor plays multiple roles and frequently shifts characters while on stage, offering an intriguing and comedic effect. Touring both in the fall and spring, AFTLS visits approximately 16-20 universities in a year, giving students and faculty a chance to experience their dynamic and enriching performing arts program. The vibrant hands-on nature of the program provides an extraordinary opportunity to engage faculty and students far beyond the confines of the English and theatre departments.

The past few years have been a Renaissance for a cappella - with a perfect storm of movies, television, Youtube, and radio - breathing new life and excitement into the world’s first musical form.
国产偷拍视频However, as great as it is to see and hear a cappella on screens large and small, the best way to experience vocal harmony is in person, which is why A Cappella Live was born.
Built on the classic Motown review tour model, A Cappella Live is bringing four of the nation’s greatest a cappella acts to performing arts centers around America:
- The charming boyband sound and moves of The Filharmonic
- The rich harmonies of gospel/r&b legends Committed
- Chart-topping lead vocals and live-looping beatbox by Blake Lewis
- Internationally-inspired songstresses Women of the World
Never before have four acts of this caliber been brought together on the same stage on the same night. Audiences will have an opportunity to hear each group perform their greatest and best-known hits as well as large-scale production numbers featuring all four groups, plus some additional special surprises.
