GUEST ARTISTS JOE LEONARD, Scenic Designer A 1989 graduate of CCM’s Theater Design and Production Department, Joe Leonard has designed shows for the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, LaComedia Dinner Theater, Kings Island, Kings Dominion, Carowinds, Great America and Canada’s Wonderland. His design credits include such shows as Into the Woods, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Pippin, Twelfth Night, One Flew Over the Cuckcoo’s Nest, A Christmas Carol, The Drowsy Chaperone, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Hairspray and Mary Poppins. Leonard has used his training in a wide variety of mediums including theme park rides, exhibits, and graphic and architecture design work with companies such as Paramount Parks D+E, Herschend Family Entertainment and Walt Disney World. He designed the themed environments of Outer Limits: Flight of Fear (an indoor roller coaster) and was the lead designer of the award-winning attraction, Star Trek: the Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton. Leonard has worked with a variety of production companies designing sets for special events and conventions such as the 2012 World Choir Games in Cincinnati. In addition to live entertainment, he has used his set design talents in the creation of museum exhibits including the current Jellyfish Exhibit at the Newport Aquarium, the fully automated Global Village Experience at Matthew 25 Ministries in Blue Ash and the traveling exhibit, Titanic: The Movie on Tour. Leonard is thrilled to return to the CCM Stage where his work was last seen in the 1989 productions of The House of Bernarda Alba and The Wonder Years for Hot Summer Nights.

FRIENDS FRIENDS OF CCM Dear Friends, We share a common bond: the joy of watching a performance of the exceptional young artists at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music. During their short stay at CCM, we get to revel in the talent of our students and to encourage their creativity. Sometimes, we are privileged to get to know some of the students individually. Regardless, the gifts they bestow upon us are many. You can help CCM maintain its tradition of excellence by becoming a Friend of CCM. For over 30 years, Friends have served as advocates, fans and volunteers whose love of performing and media arts extends beyond sitting in the audience. Our memberships not only create scholarship opportunities to help CCM attract the best and brightest freshmen but also ease hardship situations for returning students. Help nurture the CCM stars of tomorrow by joining the Friends today! Becoming a member is easy: complete the form on the next page and mail it back to us. You can also visit ccm.uc.edu and click on the FRIENDS link to join. Not only will membership provide financial support for students, but it will reward you with fun member benefits (such as behind-the-scenes tours) and ticket discounts on select performances and special events.
