Alison Currie

A student from the SCMS, Allison Currie, is among the five recipients of the Black Theatre Coalition/Broadway Across America Fellowship sponsored by the John Gore Organization.
Currie is an undergraduate student pursuing Multimedia Studies–Film, Video, and New Media with a minor in Psychology and a certificate in Ethnic Studies. She was part of the dual enrollment program and took many upper-division SCMS credit hours while attending FAU High School.

As part of the 14-week paid fellowship, Currie will gain “practical experience through on-the-job learning in Broadway Across America offices and learn the intricacies of the business through an education curriculum taught by John Gore Organization professionals.” 

The inaugural BTC-BAA fellowship is open to college undergraduate juniors, seniors, and recent college graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in theater administration.
The program recognizes the underrepresentation of Black-identifying professionals in the commercial theater industry and is dedicated to “fostering and preserving a culture of equity, diversity, access, and inclusion while providing an invaluable, in-depth education in the business of commercial theater.”
