The American College Theater Festival (ACTF) Awards
During any year the department is a member of the ACTF, students are eligible to receive certificate of achievement awards or acting nominations from adjudicating members of the American College Theatre Festival for work on main stage productions entered in the Festival. Student designers and stage managers are honored by the adjudicators with certificate of achievement awards for excellence in technical theatre, and student actors are honored with acting nominations that permit performers to attend regional acting competitions with other ACTF award recipients in various acting categories.
In 2001, the department's production of Naga-Mandala: Play with a Cobra (picture above) was selected by the ACTF as an entry in its region II competition of plays held at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Chosen from among over 90 participating productions from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, and the District of Columbia, Naga-Mandala was one of five shows selected to perform and compete in Pittsburgh. Naga-Mandala received acting nominations from ACTF adjudicators and certificate of achievement awards from the ACTF for professor Merideth Taylor's stage direction and co-sound design and for student work in scenic sculpture, mime, and ensemble performing.
Previous certificate of achievement awards from the ACTF include the lighting design of The Tooth of Crime, as well as acting nominations for "Whose Life Is It Anyway?," "The Tooth of Crime," Medea: A Noh Cycle Based on the Greek Myth, "The Colored Museum," "In My Time," "The Skin of Our Teeth" (1993 and 2003), and Tartuffe.
