Going Public: "Keeping Live Theatre Alive" Fundraising Initiative Supports SEMO Students

Nov 19, 2020

The Jeanine Larson Dobbins Conservatory of Theatre and Dance at Southeast hasn't slowed down during the pandemic. They are still performing, although to smaller crowds to follow CDC guidelines, and are planning for the Lanford Wilson New American Play Festival next summer. In addition, they have launched a fundraising intiative called "Keeping Live Theatre Alive" which features videos of some of the biggest stars of stage and screen performing a piece that they wrote.
