Two Boston College theatre students have returned from the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival Region 1 with awards.
Elise Hudson ’12 won second place for her regional entry of her costume design of The Magic Flute, an opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. These design sketches were created as a final project for a class she took at Boston College.
Nzinga Williams ’12 received an Honorable Mention for her national entry in stage management for the production of She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith. She Stoops to Conquer was a great success at the Robsham Theater Arts Center in November 2010.
The Region One Festival of the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival promotes excellence and professionalism in undergraduate college theater through various programs and competitions. In previous years, Boston College has sent playwrights, designers, dramaturgs, and directors with great success.
The Boston College production of The Magic Flute will debut at Lyons Hall, room 423 on Sunday, February 13, 2011. Directed by Barbara S. Gawlick, The Magic Flute will be performed by BC students and the audience will be encourage to participate in this English-language version of Mozart’s opera. Admission is free. Elise Hudson’s costume design is in no way related to this production.
