Local Students Receive Theater Awards at Dordt College
2011 Feb 17Several students and staff from Dordt College were recently presented with awards from the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (ACTF) in Ames, Iowa. This year Dordt received seven awards at ACTF, 12 nominations to participate in the Irene Ryan acting auditions, and one student was selected to stage manage a play. Theatre Arts Professor Simon du Toit noted that even amid large theater departments from major universities, Dordt's quality of work was clearly evident. "Standing in the room as our several awards were announced, it was clear that our program did better than even many larger university theater programs in that area. I praise God that our college was publicly credited in that way and hope that his name will be glorified through it," du Toit said.
