Each year, dozens of students from the School of Theatre and Dance participate in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. At this year’s region 6 festival, held in Abilene, Texas, students presented work in facets of theatre including design, performance, playwriting, criticism and dramaturgy.
“At TTU, I’ve learned that students should not be afraid to take the initiative to make their own art. As I graduate, I know that I will both look for and make opportunities happen in the future, whatever the challenges.”
Before the social distancing guidelines for COVID-19 were implemented, Ryan Fay had been hard at work on his thesis project: devising an adaptation of Jungle Book for the stage, based on the famous classic by Rudyard Kipling.
Texas Tech University School of Theatre and Dance students participate in theatre conferences throughout the year, attending workshops, submitting conference papers, and networking with other artists all over the country. In February, a group of students attended the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Louisville, KY and the Mid-Atlantic Theatre Conference in Chicago, IL.
