• Rocio Carolina Rios Schaaf ’09, a regional finalist in the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival, won the 10-minute play competition with her play The Professor. She has since been invited to participate in the National competition in April at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Congratulations Carolina!
• Christina Watka ’08, a theatre minor and Visual Art major, was selected for the Copley Society of Art’s 19th Annual Student Show, marking her second appearance at the Copley Society.
• Jennifer Buckhout ‘09 and Jennifer Laudia ‘09 both performed in Bread & Puppet Theatre’s latest Boston production, The Divine Reality Comedy. The Vermont-based company has been a fixture of political theatre since the 1960’s, although they are equally known for their larger-than-life-size puppets. The Jens performed with Bread & Puppet at the Boston Center for the Arts in February.
• The critics love Alum Nael Nacer ’07 in Gary at Boston Playwright’s Theatre. The Boston Globe says, “Nael Nacer is particularly effective as Tommy, with a mix of sweetness and cruelty that twists sinuously along with the wrenching turns of the story.” The Boston Phoenix calls him “a standout. Like many a rock star, he makes charisma dangerous, and like many a good actor, he makes transitions from saint to sinner and back again plausible and not always contradictory.”
• Jonathan Orisini ’07 will extend his standout role in The Little Dog Laughed at Hartford’s TheatreWorks in Connecticut.
• Alumna and former Theatre Department staff member, Colleen Rua ’99, returned to Suffolk to direct a staged reading of Visiting Professor Hugo Salcedo’s play The Crossing. The reading was performed in the C. Walsh Theatre and also featured a discussion section with the author.
