A trio of Baltimore institutions want the performing arts to be a viable path for students who showed they were meant for the stage.

In the fall, a new program is set to launch at the University of Baltimore that’s aimed to help students who face financial barriers to pursuing theatre in college. Performance Studies: Baltimore is set to pair UB’s curriculum with course instructors from Everyman Theatre and workshops given by actors who perform at the Hippodrome Theatre. Along with the performance, the coursework will also address the business side of the arts.

“In the same way that Baltimore needs its smart young people who want to work in science, business, law, government and education, we also need those talented youth who hope to become actors, musicians, painters—artists of all kinds,” University of Baltimore President Kurt L. Schmoke said in an announcement about the program.

An information session is planned for June 21 at Wright Theater at the University of Baltimore. More info.
