The WCDAC Holiday Party 2021

Hello, WCDAC Members!

We are so excited to invite you to our IN-PERSON, OUTDOOR holiday party! A few things we are doing a little differently this year:

  • We will not be charging a party entrance fee for members. You will receive one drink ticket at the door and the rest are on you, but there will be plenty of food provided for everyone.
  • We are hosting at a private event space, so we ask that you please RSVP.
  • You MUST be vaccinated to attend, preferably with a booster!
    Thank you so much for your understanding as we adapt to meet the changing times. We so look forward to celebrating the season with you.

eShowcase 2020 Has Arrived!

On behalf of the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama, we invite you to support the class of 2020 during eShowcase on Monday, 5/18/2020!

The school is hosting a virtual presentation of work on that day, including a live event, and a website filled with student work that is active NOW! The details can be found below, including links to various aspects of the showcase experience. We encourage you to check out the excellent work by the students and urge you to contact them for further discussion.

On Wednesday May 20th WCDAC will hold a one day virtual version of our usual showcase week. You can see an overview of what we’re doing here. Although we can’t all be together to celebrate as we usually do, all of WCDAC salutes the graduating students and we welcome them into the ranks of School of Drama Alumni.

We hope that you are all staying safe, and all of the alumni and WCDAC members participating in eShowcase have our thanks!

New Website Goals

  • Modernized Interface & Look
  • Full Mobile Device Compatibility
  • Active Forums section – post your insider tips & help folks getting started in LA!
    • This section is hidden from the public, much like:
  • Working Member Directory
    • You choose how much profile information to show to fellow members
    • ALL of your info is hidden from the “public” – folks who aren’t logged into the WCDAC website.
  • Up-To-Date Source for latest News & Events
  • NEW Showcase Info Coming Soon
  • Event Registration/RSVP within the website
  • Removed thousands of spam accounts on the website which had built up over a few years.
    • Active SPAM protection is in place to keep this from happening again!
  • Mobile Device compatibility
