Rashomon’s a Winner!

March 23, 2016

Well, the run of Rashomon is officially over!  The play was San Jacinto College Central’s Department of Theatre and Film’s contest entry, and the show did so well that we wound up adding two extra performances.  On Thursday of the regularly scheduled run, the powers that be came to see and critique/review the production, and the results were as follows: the show was chosen to be held in consideration to move on in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival competition, several actors and one student designer won individual Irene Ryan awards, and I personally am on the receiving end of a couple of multi-person awards: “Meritorious Achievement and Excellence for Ensemble, Production Crew, and Staff” and “Meritorious Achievement and Excellence for Directing” respectively.  I was basically the Japanese movement director, and I choreographed and taught the ensemble dance work, so… woohoo!  I apparently did a good job, and so did the entire production staff, cast, design team, and crew.  I’ll keep you posted if we wind up advancing in the competition.

My master’s degree at work, ladies and gentlemen!  Sometimes an MFA in Asian Styles of Performance can come in handy.  Most of the time at SanJac, I’ll admit that I wind up focusing on the chops developed when earning my Musical Theatre BA, but I’ve never won an award for my work as a Music Director.  Three cheers for having something cool to put on my resume, both as a theatrical professional and a professor. -E.G.D.
