Honoring Randy Duncan, Faculty Legacy Award Recipient
Please join us at Showcase on Saturday, February 9 at the Athenaeum Theatre as we present Randy Duncan with The Chicago Academy for the Arts Faculty Legacy Award. The annual Academy Showcase is a community-wide celebration featuring top work from each of our arts departments, and we hope you — students, parents, alumni families, faculty and staff, prospective parents, supporters, and friends of any kind — will spend this special evening with us. We aim to make this year’s event the largest of any kind in the Academy’s history. To help offset the cost of any comp tickets, if you are able to sponsor a few additional tickets (through the option on the checkout page) we would truly appreciate it. We’ll see you at Showcase!
*Note: All Academy students will be comped free tickets to Showcase.
