In this episode, Tommy sits down with Nick Westrate, an actor on the AMC series Turn: Washington’s Spies and an actors’ equity advocate. Join Tommy and Nick for a discussion of avant-garde theatre, actors’ equity and bringing to life one of history’s most mysterious characters. The second half of the program features the world-premiere performance of “Beauty Ancient and New” by the 2016-17 Arts Academy Band and Sareem Poems. The piece, written by Arts Academy Instructor of Music Theory Tom Childs, commemorates the life and works of St. Augustine of Hippo.
