Next Wave Initiative
On July 1st, at 7pm EST, NWI will host its first Zoom-Room Series: "To be young, gifted, Black...and cast."
This 70 minute private discussion will feature an extraordinary panel including actress Carly Hughes ("American Housewife", Chicago), director Zhailon Levingston (Tina, Chicken and Biscuits), manager Harold Lewter of CLA Partners, and Mychael Chinn, recent executive producer of Lifetime's "The First Ladies of Gospel".
The "young, gifted, Black...and cast" Zoom room is free for any current African-American High-school or College students. The encouraged donation for Adults is $5.00 towards the Next Wave Initiative.
Founded by Douglas Lyons (Beautiful, Beau), The Next Wave Initiative is a developmental branch of The Directors Company, committed to amplifying future Black voices in The American Theatre.
Please note, you will receive a link for the Zoom Room on June 30, one day prior to the event.
