Since 1991, the St. Ambrose Theatre Department goes to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) each January. At this festival there are many different events.
One of the main events is the Irene Ryan Scholarship Competition. At 3 of our 4 mainstage shows someone from a different school comes to watch our show. Afterward they give feedback to the cast and crew and choose two outstanding actors to receive Irene Ryan Nominations.
Since January, four new nominees have been selected to participate in the Irene Ryan part of the 2015 KCACTF: Chris Galvan '15, Shannon Rourke '16, Brooke Schelly '15, and Becca Brazel '16.
Galvan and Rourke were selected for their work on The Laramie Project and Schelly and Brazel were selected for their work on The Importance of Being Earnest.
