Ward in NYCGMC’s ‘Quiet No More’

June 27th, 2019 in Alums, Blog, Bruce Ward, Carnegie Hall, New York City

Break a leg—that works for singers, too, right?—to playwright alum Bruce Ward and the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus (NYCGMC) performing Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall tonight at Carnegie Hall.

The event commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in NYC, as well as the 40th anniversary of the founding of NYCGMC, with a brand new choral music suite, co-commissioned by NYCGMC and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. The piece will have performances by choruses throughout the U.S. in 2019, the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQ choruses.

How Bruce Ward spent [part of] his summer vacation

July 29th, 2015 in Alums, Blog, Bruce Ward, new plays, short plays

Here is a terrific video playwright alum Bruce Ward shared with us, about his gig earlier this summer as Playwright in Residence at the School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC), the largest non-profit performing arts education program in Virginia. Bruce helped eight high school student playwrights from across Virginia bring their original one-act plays to life on the stage at the 26th Annual New Voices for the Theater Festival of New Works. Fantastic!
