Galveston College Theatre Department recognized at Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival

Eight students from the Galveston College Theatre Department recently attended the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas.

At the regional festival, the Galveston College students participated in the on-site devised initiative. This consisted of working with students from other colleges under the supervision of Alyssa Hughlett from the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre to create an original devised performance based on the prompt, “She/He/They Never Met a Stranger.” Eva Arita, Alyssa Gudz, Tyler Hanna, Gabrielle Hosler, Jade Killebrew and Eric Scales each received a KCACTF “Festival Developed Devised Performance Award” and Destiny Shute received the KCACTF “Devised Theatre Student Excellence Award.”

Students Melina Moore and Destiny Shute performed one scene and a monologue for the Irene Ryan acting competition. Moore was chosen as the Irene Ryan Acting Nominee Award Recipient from the GC Theatre Department’s fall production of “It’s A Wonderful Life.” She was also cast for a role in the play “15” by Claire Fountain and performed in the Ten-Minute Play Festival.

“It was truly an honor and privilege to be able to attend this prestigious collegiate theatre festival,” said Liz Lacy, Galveston College program coordinator for the performing arts. “While Galveston College is a small college theatre department compared to the other colleges and universities represented at the festival, the Galveston College students performed exceptionally well.”

In addition, the students attended six plays, musical theatre presentations, staged play readings and at least three workshops a day on various topics including acting, playwriting, directing and various technical topics. Galveston College also sponsored the Design and Technology Breakfast for all participants at the festival.
