NIC auditorium staff/theater department earn national awards

Several North Idaho College Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium staff members as well as students and former students of the NIC theater department recently received prestigious awards from the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival for the production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” this fall.
 
NIC Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium Director Justin Van Eaton received a Meritorious Achievement Award for scenic design of the production.
 
NIC Boswell Hall Schuler Auditorium Technical Director John Gallegos earned a Meritorious Achievement Award for theatrical lighting.
 
NIC Theater Department Costumer Judith McGiveney received a Meritorious Achievement Award for costume design for the fall production.
 
Former NIC student Monica Thomas, who played Helena in NIC’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” received an award for her acting work in the play.
 
Current NIC students T.C. Parker, who played Oberon, and Danté Autrey, who played
Hermia, received nominations to compete for $500 scholarships during the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship competition at the regional conference in Ellensburg, Wash., next month.
 
The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival is a national theater program involving 18,000 students from more than 600 colleges and universities nationwide. Through the organization, theater departments and student artists showcase their work and receive outside assessment by Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival respondents.
 
A respondent was invited by NIC’s Theater Department to attend the fall play at NIC. The respondent can then elect to recognize outstanding work by staff members and nonstudents with certificates of merit.
 
“It’s not often that I’ve seen so many people associated with a production be recognized for their contributions,” said NIC Theater Director Joe Jacoby, who directed the play. “The awards aren’t given out lightly—they are reserved for outstanding work.”
