4Cs Students Participating in Annual Regional Theater Festival

WEST BARNSTABLE – Students from Cape Cod Community College are participating in this week’s 50th annual Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival at Western Connecticut State University.

The regional festival gathers more than 1,000 students and faculty to showcase and celebrate the best artistic work of the region.

Three 4Cs performing arts students and their partners will compete in the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Auditions, including Shauna Joseph, of Sandwich, and partner Cameron Hall, of Centerville; Michael Bertucci, of Hyannis, and his partner Kai Blanton, of Bourne; and Andrews Gates, of Bourne, and his partner Garrett Spagone, of Falmouth.

Joseph and Hall are also representing the college as part of the Design, Technology and Management Expo. Joseph is a stage management nominee for her work on the spring 2017 production of George Orwell’s “1984.” Hall is also participating for his work on sound design for the same production.

Jacob Welsh, of Pocasset, who designed props for “1984” is also attending the expo.

The students will also perform selections from their recent work, “Too Much Light Make the Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes)” by Greg Allen as part of the festival’s inaugural “Fringe Friday.”

In addition to the invited productions, the festival provides theater students the opportunity to attend workshops and display their work in dramaturgy, design, stage management, directing, playwriting, musical theater and acting.
