Three City College of New York theatre majors will spend this summer in an intensive eight-week program at the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA), supported by the City College Fund and the Division of Humanities and the Arts.
“This is a huge deal,” said Professor Rob Barron, chair of the CCNY Department of Theatre and Speech. “LAMDA is an extraordinary training program. It’s an opportunity that 95 percent of our students couldn’t afford to do on their own.”
Students chosen for the program are:
Alessandro Barbarotto, ’14, of Lindenhurst, N.Y., a native of Italy who transferred to City College from Suffolk Community College and commutes to campus from his Long Island home. He has appeared as: Jeffrey in the musical “Godspell;” Rocco, in Eduardo de Filippo’s “Dolor Sotto Chaive,” and The Father in Sarah Ruhl’s “Eurydice.”
Ruby Hurlock, ’15, who also hails from Long Island, and is one of eight siblings. She has appeared at City College in Marsha Norman’s “Getting Out,” Gogol’s “The Inspector General,” “Godspell” and the Annual One-Act Play Festival.
