The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music presents six original works in the Acting Department’s TRANSMIGRATION Festival: Nightlight, Flipping Channels, Price of Admission, Powder Train, Everyman and Underneath Paoli, Arizona. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the annual festival runs March 7-9 throughout CCM Village.

TRANSMIGRATION gives CCM Acting students the freedom to produce an entirely new show from start to finish. The teams are tasked with writing, designing and producing 30-minute pieces of theatre all on their own.

Co-produced by CCM Acting Chair Richard Hess and Professor Brant Russell, this unique festival has presented 60 original productions over the past 10 years. The shows are performed simultaneously and in non-traditional spaces throughout CCM’s Corbett Center for the Performing Arts. Attendees may customize their personal theater-going experience by viewing up to four shows of their choice throughout the evening.
