The Arcadia University Theater program is proud to have three senior students—Katie Scheidt, Robin Stamey, and Jamal Douglas—participating in the National Festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., April 12-18.

In recognition of his outstanding work in Home, Douglas ’10 is one of three acting students around the country offered a National Selection Team Fellowship by the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. The fellowship includes tickets to the invited productions of the Festival, participation in the master classes offered to the national finalists of the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship, and casting in various KCACTF new play award and short play showcases (script-in-hand readings) with professional casts from the D.C. community.
