Wake Forest University has been recognized by the North Carolina Theatre Conference (NCTC) with the 2010 College/University Award.

The award recognizes efforts by professors and students who are committed to spreading the word about the variety of opportunities in higher education for high school students interested in theatre.

This year, Associate Professors of Theatre Brook Davis and Sharon Andrews participated in College Discovery Day, an event hosted by NCTC, observing high school student auditions and serving on panels to inform high school students about the variety of paths for theatre study after graduation. Director of Theatre John Friedenberg offered constructive criticism for actors at a high school one-act play festival.

Junior theatre major Ashley Singer and first-year student Elizabeth Stothart met with perspective students to tell them about Wake Forest’s program and sophomore Dean Guerra, served on a panel called “A Day in the Life of Theatre Major.”

“We’re happy to receive statewide recognition of the strength of our program and of the regular contributions to the field by our students and faculty,” says J.K. Curry, associate professor of theatre.
