ATTENDING THE MAIN EVENT FULL DRESS REHEARSAL
Student training reaches its crescendo at the conclusion of the Education Program where they will attend the entire dress rehearsal for The Main Event.

Here students will also experience a special connection to the professional performance as their training mentors, BrockusRed, takes the stage. At the conclusion, students will be invited to discuss their experience of the Program and complete a survey.
