Considering a trip to the Big Apple? If you travel the weekend of May 1-3, you can experience a little taste of UNCG.

Two UNCG alumni — Chris Chalk '01 and Beth Leavel '80 MFA — are performing on Broadway and allowing alumni an inside look at the actor's life.

Chalk is cast as Cory in the revival of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Fences.” He takes the stage alongside such notables as Denzel Washington and Viola Davis.

Leavel, a Tony Award winner for her role in “The Drowsy Chaperone,” is now playing leading lady Donna Sheridan in “Mamma Mia.”

On May 2, Leavel will give a backstage tour of “Mamma Mia” at 5 p.m. and Chalk will meet alumni for dinner at 7 p.m.

Alumni can choose whether to buy tickets to either of the Broadway performances. Visit to purchase tickets for “Mamma Mia.” Visit to purchase tickets for “Fences.” Both will offer a 2 p.m. matinee and 8 p.m. performance on Saturday, May 1 and afternoon performances on Sunday, May 2.

The three-day weekend will wrap up with UNCG's annual alumni reception and showcase at Kirk Theatre on 42nd Street. During the showcase, our newest theatre alumni will perform short vignettes. Agents are invited to the performance so they can get to know the newest actors destined for New York.
