Texas Tech First University Featured on Actors Hall of Fame Website
Department chairman Mark Charney said community outreach played a role in its selection.
Texas Tech University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is the first university to be featured on DramaNotes, an online news and information service for college students and educators in dramatic arts that went live today (Jan 14). The Actors Hall of Fame Foundation created the website, which connects people online and through Twitter (@drama_notes).
Mark Charney, chairman of the Department of Theatre and Dance, said Texas Tech was chosen as the first university to be featured in The Actors Hall of Fame because of the department’s unique and groundbreaking work with community organizations and outreach, which mirrors the work The Actors Hall of Fame does on a national scale.
He anticipates this spotlight will benefit Texas Tech in recruiting students attracting performers to the university, especially for WildWind Performance Lab, one of the department’s signature training programs.
