The School of Theatre was well represented at this year’s Southeastern Theatre Conference that was held in Mobile, AL at the beginning of March. Faculty and students from the School of Theatre led multiple presentations throughout the weekend. The presentations, and the Faculty/students who led them, included Mindfulness: Is There an App for That? led by Michael Hayden (faculty) and Danny Burgos (student), Creating Design Renderings with ArtStudio on iPads led by Colleen Muscha (faculty) and Matthew Pedersen (student), Tailoring 101: Techniques to Create Men’s 19th Century Garmets led by Martha Cooper (faculty) and Annie Rupprecht (student), and Emerging Arts Leaders: Career Opportunities in Arts Management led by David Valdez (student), Tracy Power (student), and Brandon Belote (student).
In addition, congratulations are in order for MFA Costume Design student Annie Rupprecht who won the 2014 Ready to Work award and placed third in the Costume Crafts Competition. Recipients of the Ready to Work award receive a $1,000 cash prize, as well as the opportunity to design professionally next season.
