The SCDF has also been announced that Adam Belcuore, an early career director from Chicago, has been chosen as the first recipient of the foundation's Mike Ockrent Fellowship in Musical Theatre. For his fellowship, Belcuore will be mentored by the legendary director Hal Prince on the upcoming production of Stephen Sondheim's Bounce at Chicago's Goodman Theatre. Belcuore is an original founding member of Serendipity Theatre Company and currently its artistic director. The SDCF fellowship -- named after director Mike Ockrent, who staged Big, Crazy for You, and Me and My Girl on Broadway -- allows the recipient to take part in all aspects of production, from conceptual and design meetings through rehearsals and previews.
