Theatre major wins dramaturgy award at regional competition
Austin Bolay, a senior theatre major, won the LMDA/KCACTF Student Dramaturgy Award at the Region IV Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival this past week. Austin will receive membership in LMDA, an all-expense paid residency at the National Festival at the Kennedy Center in mid-April, which includes multi-day workshops with leading artists in production and new-play dramaturgy. He will also compete for the National LMDA/KCACTF Fellowships for the chance at residencies with the O’Neill Playwrights Conference, The Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis and/or the Kennedy Center/National New Play Network’s MFA Playwrights’ Workshop in the summer.
Also representing Georgia Southern with excellence at the festival were Zoe Campbell, who so impressed the stage management staff they created an award just for her, and Julianne Norkus and Greg Hernandez, who made it to round two of the Irene Ryan acting competition (where 32 pairs were cut down from more than 300).
