Texas A&M-Kingsville theatre students, faculty bring home festival honors
Theatre students and faculty from Texas A&M University-Kingsville were successful at the regional level of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) in Abilene.
Corey Ranson, associate professor of theatre, received the highest honor, the KCACTF Gold Medallion Award. It is given by each of the eight regions to honor individuals or organizations that have made extraordinary contributions to the teaching and producing of theatre and who have significantly dedicated their time, artistry and enthusiasm to the development of the KCACTF.
Ranson said, “It means we got some recognition for what we do. They know we are a small program and I appreciate them a lot. It also bodes well on myself and the university for what we have done here. When we do a show, we know we must work harder than other schools, but we still put up great work.”
Individually, Ryan Duncan won the Aspire Arts Management Award which provides him with an all-expense paid trip to the national festival in Washington D.C. for a week to participate in an arts management fellowship.
