Amberlin McCormick has two big roles and graduate school on the horizon.

Theatre major Amberlin McCormick will perform leading roles in two upcoming regional productions. Beginning Friday, April 19, she will perform the role of Eurydice in the Warehouse Performing Arts Center production of Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice. The show runs at the Warehouse, in Cornelius, through May 4.

In July, Amberlin will perform the role of Viola in a production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, directed by Ted Lange, at the National Black Theatre Festival in Winston-Salem. Amberlin played Viola in the Department of Theatre production of Twelfth Night in November.

Amberlin will graduate in May with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre. In the fall, she will attend the University of Tennessee to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Theatre with a concentration in acting.

MFA students receive extensive performing experience at the Clarence Brown Theatre.
