11/4/2011 8:44:00 AM by PCA&D



Senior illustration students at PCA&D have once again created promotional art for children's plays presented at the Broadway Theatre of Pitman, New Jersey.

Students whose works are used for the 2012 print and online promotions include Abby DeWitt, Randy Haldeman, Alicia Jagels, Kitty Kennard, Andrea D. Shoultz, Jess Slavik, K.C. Spencer, and Cassandra Steich.

Randy Haldeman's work for "Lotsa Lucky Leprechauns" is pictured above. 

Seniors' artworks depict family favorites such as "Snow White," "The Magic Toy Box," and "Peter Rabbit."  The work is seen on the Theatre's print brochures and Web site, on each show's playbill, and posters inside the theater.

Robert Hochgertel, chair of PCA&D's illustration department, notes that this is the fifth year his senior students have successfully created art for the Broadway Theatre.  He also notes that as result of this recurring client-driven project, illustration graduate Bridget Stanley '09 secured on-going freelance illustration work with the theater.
PCA&D students have occasionally gone to the Broadway Theater to see their artwork on posters and playbills inside. Alumnus Neil McMillin '07, who created artwork for the Theatre's production of "Gypsy," told of an experience he had when patrons at the Theatre asked, upon learning he was present, to sign the front of the playbill that featured his art.

The Broadway Theater in Pitman, New Jersey, opened in 1926. It served as a stopping point for performers traveling between Philadelphia and New York.  Among the famous celebrities who appeared at the theater over the years are Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Abbott & Costello, George Burns and Gracie Allen, the Herman's Hermits, and George Carlin.
