2010 Outstanding Recent Alumni Award


Megan K. Hilty (CFA 2004) made her Broadway debut as Glinda in the musical "Wicked," composed by fellow alumnus Stephen Schwartz. After a year on Broadway, Hilty reprised her role on the "Wicked" national tour and Los Angeles production.

Her rendition of Doralee Rhodes in Dolly Parton's Broadway musical "9 to 5" earned nominations for Outer Critics, Drama Desk and Drama League awards. She has appeared in several television series, including "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Ugly Betty" and "Desperate Housewives." Hilty has taught master classes at the School of Drama and introduced the senior talent showcase in New York City, the same annual event in which a casting director for "Wicked" first saw her perform.
