Founded in 1973, The School for Creative and Performing Arts provides students with top-notch academic instruction along with pre-professional training in the arts. More high-profile alumni include Sarah Jessica Parker, Carmen Electra, Drew and Nick Lachey. But SCPA graduates perform on TV, Broadway, and in movies, work as producers, editors and make-up artists, and find success in more “traditional” fields, as teachers, accountants, marketers and the like. The School for Creative and Performing Arts Principal, Steven Brokamp, and Artistic Director Dr. Isadore Rudnick join us to discuss the school and its history, as it prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
