KCACTF National Awards for Productions Invited to the 2020 Regional Festivals

The January and February Regional Festivals feel like a lifetime ago.

In hindsight, for most of us, we were seeing some of the last full productions prior to the global health crisis and all of our lives experiencing a societal fermata; holding on, sustaining our energies, but waiting expectantly for a resumption.

In the interim, we’ve also been confronted by a new cycle of injustice that repeats on a horrifying, perpetual loop. In this time of isolation, we are all examining the way forward as citizens, as friends, as loved ones, as both teachers and students, and as artistic collaborators who must face bigotry and racism’s uncomfortable truths and, if nothing else, challenge our own professional ethics as artist educators if we are to make our work with any semblance of integrity.

It is in this context that I remember fondly the all of the work of dramatists, the range of designs, essential dramaturgy, the performances, direction, special technologies and craft skills that were showcased in Madison, College Park, Sioux Falls, Hyannis, Spartanburg, Fullerton, Fort Collins and Abilene. We are blessed by gifted students, and teaching artists-nationwide-making a very real impact.

The honors below represent outstanding and distinguished achievement recognized by the KCACTF National Committee, Guest Artistic Director Sonja Parks, and the KCACTF National Office- Kelsey Mesa and Gregg Henry.  

 

The Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Awards

Recognizing programs in higher education using theatrical production to promote long-term societal impact through an artistic, empathetic exploration of our complex cultural and physical world, and advocates for justice on campus and throughout the world.
