BC Theatre Students Win Awards at Kennedy Center Event

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.

-This post has been edited to clarify that Elise Hudson’s costumes for The Magic Flute are not connected to an upcoming BC production.


After this blog post was published on BC Arts Insider, the Boston College Chronicle published a feature on Elise Hudson and Nzinga Williams. You can read it on their web site, available here.

    Just to clarify, my costume design project for the MAgic Flute was a final project for a class and has nothing to do with the production of the Magic Flute coming up this weekend. I do have many friends in the show who are outrageously talented, so I encourage you all the go see it! However, this production is not connected with my design project. It was no more than a project on paper.
