[audio http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wypr/local-wypr-994744.mp3]Young people who aspire to a career in theater or films have more choices for secondary degrees and training programs than ever before.  A couple of weeks ago, the Hippodrome Foundation held a symposium with leading theater educators to discuss options that high school students have as they pursue their dreams to make it to Broadway or the silver screen.

Before the symposium, two of the panelists stopped by our studio to talk about how young artists are making the transition from being kids with a dream, to being actors with a job.

Donald Hicken has been the head of the theater department at the Baltimore School for the Arts since the school was founded in the late 1970s.  Judy Bartl is the program director of the Guthrie Theater Actor Training Program at the University of Minnesota.
