Professor of Theatre Catherine Rodgers and Sarah McCabe, Costume Shop Supervisor, accompanied 11 students to Spartanburg, S.C., to attend the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for Region IV from February 7-10.
Two of the theatre students won prestigious awards, despite competing with other larger institutions and graduate students. Senior Theatre major Allie Sullivan was one of ten students who won the Stagecraft Institute of Las Vegas One-Week Internship Award, and she received the Allied Design and Technologies Award for her work on last semester’s production of She Kills Monsters. Freshman MacKenzie Ulibarri received second place for her Lighting Design for the same show, as well as the 3-D software design program VectorWorks.
Four of the students, Laura Austin, Leslie Castro, Gracie Glenn, and Allie Sullivan, performed a ten-minute scene from Marie Antoinette for the Saturday evening Gala. There were only three other schools invited to perform for this final event at the festival.
