Broadway Star Headlines FAU C.A.S.T. Party Celebrating Arts and Culture > Held to celebrate the cultivation of arts and letters on campus and in the community, FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters hosts its fourth annual Culture, Arts and Society Today (CAST) Party headlining Florida Atlantic University alumnus and Broadway, film and television star Marc Kudisch ’88.
Guests of this “friend-, fan- and fundraiser” for student scholarships in the college will enjoy cocktails, fine food, and live musical theater selections performed by three-time Tony Award nominee Kudisch, who recently starred in his 15th Broadway show.
Other entertainment will include the FAU Jazz Band, Phil Hinton on piano, Juan Pena (FAU ’16) on guitar, Ryan Hutchings and Mitchell Hutchings with musical theatre, visual arts pop-ups, and guest dancing to live pop music from FAU’s own commercial music band.
The 2024 CAST Party commemorates the 30th anniversary of the naming of the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters by honoring the legacy of Schmidt and the Schmidt Family Foundation.
In addition, Myrna Gordon Skurnick will be honored for her contributions to the arts in South Florida, and BrandStar will be recognized for its generous gift to transform the former FAU Studio II Theater into BrandStar Studios at FAU.
All proceeds from the event benefit student scholarships for the Schmidt College of Arts and Letters that houses 21 academic programs, including the School of the Arts, along with humanities degrees, social science degrees, and the areas of communication and architecture.
The college is also home to the Center for Peace, Justice and Human Rights; the Center for the Future Mind; Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies; Global Studies; Jewish Studies; among others.
