RELEASED: November 15, 2001
DANVILLE, KY The Kentucky Theatre Association will be holding its annual festival Nov. 16-18 at Centre College and Danville High School.
Theatres from across the state representing professional, community, college, university and high school programs will meet to celebrate community and explore ways of reaching out in these times of need.
"These are times of great crisis and were all in the business of community building," said Tony Haigh, festival organizer and professor of dramatic arts at Centre.
Sixteen performances will take place during the festival, including a showcase performance by Charles Pace, a Chautauqua presenter and anthropology professor at Centre, on the life of Frederick Douglass. The Centre Dramatic Arts Program will be performing "Three Sisters" each night of the festival at 8 p.m. There will also be a high-school one-act play competition, a community theatre play competition, a teachers' professional development day and more. For the college student, there will be screening auditions for professional summer work. Workshops will be given in every area and at every level of theatre.
All theatre companies in Kentucky and interested individuals are invited to participate. For more information, contact Beatrice Underwood-Sweet, festival coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (859) 238-5424.
