January 20, 2012

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently reported that Arcadia University's production of The Swing of the Sea was among eight plays selected to be performed at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF), held at Indiana University of Pennsylvania Jan. 10-14.

In this area, some 34 colleges had entered 60 productions in the main competition, with those and 36 more colleges entering another 103 as associate productions -- including Robert Morris, Carnegie Mellon and Pitt-Greensburg.

Of those 60 shows, eight were chosen to be staged at IUP, with all the tech work that entails. These included plays classic: Shakespeare's "Macbeth" (Towson University), Strindberg's "A Dream Play" (Bridgewater College) and Sophocles' "Re-Membering Antigone" (Long Island University); modern: David Auburn's "Proof" (Bloomsburg University), William Inge's "The Dark at the Top of the Stairs" (West Chester University) and Bernard Pomerance's "The Elephant Man" (Fairmont State University); and new: Molly Hagen's "Swing of the Sea" (Arcadia University) and Tammy Ryan's "Lindsey's Oyster" (IUP).
