A lot of schools also pair up in order to attract more attention to their showcase. This year Coastal Carolina is attending their first NYC showcase (with our first BFA graduating class!). We joined with Otterbein and CCM Drama who already have an established reputation. I think the concept of schools being together can work as a nice ploy for agents. But, as it's been said, showcases are not the end all be all, just a good introduction to the world. A senior MT's "coming out" (debutante-style) if you will.
