Students audition for Open Jar Institute summer program
In mid-November, ten students from LFA attended the Open Jar Musical Theater auditions to earn a spot in the Open Jar Institute's summer program, which admits 60 students per year. The students performed works that they had been preparing for the fall VOX concert in front of a panel of Broadway music directors and Jeff Whiting, an associate producer on Broadway. The students also attended a workshop on college auditions and learned about the different degrees in theatre and music. Five students were accepted into the program: Agatha Walgreen, Kendall Logan, Ellie Annibali, Sophia Platcow and Ella Ekstrom. In addition, Annmarie Morrison, Stanton Cope, Daniel Bunning, Nick Lin and Zoe Lewis competed proudly and may be accepted at a later date. Congratulations to all the students for participating in a high level audition!

LFA College Workshop for Juniors
Juniors and their parents are invited to attend LFA’s Junior College Workshop on Sunday, January 25, 2015 from 12:00 p.m.- 3:30 p.m.. The day will be led by admissions representatives from 11 different colleges and universities from across the country.
Families will participate in a mock admissions committee where they are able to decide which applicants should be admitted, waitlisted, or denied. After this session, we will reassemble for a more general question and answer session. We hope this format allows attendees to unravel the seemingly complex procedure of applying to college.
We will meet at 12:00 p.m. in Cressey Theatre to begin the day’s festivities!

We have been experiencing intermittent problems with our email system during the last month whereby some emails coming in to LFA did not get through to the intended recipients, nor did a bounce-back message go to the sender. We apologize for the inconvenience and misunderstanding that may have occurred as a result. If you have not received a prompt reply to your email from an LFA faculty or staff member, please feel free to follow up either by phone or via another email. We are pleased to announce that the problem has been identified, and we are optimistic that it has now been resolved. Again, our apologies for the communication problems.
