"Actors Patrick Wilson and Dagmara Dominczyk spoke to School of Drama college seniors on April 26, 2005 in preparation for the students’ upcoming “consortium” presentation for members of the industry in New York. They are both graduates of the drama school at Carnegie Mellon, which is a member school of the Consortium of Conservatory Theatre Training Programs, as is NCSA. Wilson was nominated for two Tonys for “The Full Monty” and “Oklahoma!” on Broadway, and recently has been seen in the films THE ALAMO, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and HARD CANDY. His fiancée, Dagmara Dominczyk, was in “Closer” on Broadway and played Mercedes in THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (opposite Jim Caveizel) and Marguerite (opposite Jon Voight) in THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN, a made-for-television movie."--NCArts Bridge to the Profession

                                                    

 

Broadway Theater Project

Tampa Florida

It's Broadway 101
   John Fleming   jfleming@tampabay.com

Some remember the very first time they felt a passion to perform. It came while watching television, or listening to their parents' old records.

The hunger finds sustenance each summer at the Broadway Theatre Project at the University of South Florida. For 15 years, practiced performers have gathered to help talented apprentices from all over develop as actors, singers, dancers and musicians.

Apprentices take classes, grind through strenuous rehearsals and glean advice from stage, television and film talents such as Patrick Wilson, Ben Vereen and Jed Bernstein. At the end of the work: two performances Saturday (7/29) at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, eagerly awaited by friends, family, and anyone who loves a good show.

Debra McWaters cofounded the project and took over after director Ann Reinking retired.

McWaters remembers when Wilson was a student in the project 13 years ago.

Patrick Wilson at Carnegie Mellon
Post-Gazette | May 1

 Ten years out of Carnegie Mellon University, Patrick Wilson was back, talking with this year's crop about the pitfalls ahead and taking some master classes. He has done this before, most recently in November 2001. Then, he had just left the lead in "The Full Monty" and was about to start rehearsals for "Oklahoma!," both on Broadway...He will keep coming back to Carnegie Mellon, Wilson says, "because I love it. I love directing. I love people who love to work." For the students, "I'm still young and connected enough. I think it's important for them to see someone who's an optimist. I loved it when Holly Hunter came back."...He had worked all the day before with Carnegie Mellon juniors and seniors. "Don't make it about yourself," he told them of movie scenes, "make it about the other person. I don't want to see you 'acting'!"
