We are proud of the consistent regional and national recognition from major media critics, regional and national adjudicators, educational peers and corporate executives.

The Kennedy Center / American College Theatre Festival is the major agency concerned with reviewing artistic productions for the nation's college and university theatre programs, and the track record of our students in this major competition is outstanding. Ten productions have been awarded regional finalist status, with three productions selected for presentation in the Kennedy Center in Washington. Dozens of students have been singled out for Irene Ryan Acting awards.

In 1993, an original student musical, All That He Was, was performed at the Kennedy Center and was selected by the Kennedy Center to represent the United States at a world festival of plays in Barcelona, Spain. The Department's Kaleidoscope Players has received two Pacific Mutual Awards and both regional and national Saturn Corporation Awards for showing initiative, creativity and ingenuity while benefiting others.
