Students Attend Kennedy Center College Theater Festival

Twenty-four students from Eastern Connecticut State University attended the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) from Jan. 27-Feb. 1. These students participated in theatre workshops, scholarship competitions, attended shows and networked with theatre students and faculty from different universities in New England.

Theatre Professor Ellen Brodie said “KCACTF is always an eye-opening experience for our students as they meet, work with and compete against hundreds of other theatre students from throughout the region.” Students competed for the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship; the Richard Maltby, Jr. Musical Theatre Awards; Merit Awards; and Stage Management. Several Eastern students earned awards and two students received internships to work at the festival.

“Most importantly, it is experiential learning at its core and also professional development for the faculty attending,” said Brodie. “This year proved to be extremely worthwhile in all aspects.”
