Theatre Grad News
Bill Kincaid, professor, theatre and dance department, reports on a couple of grads.
Allison Scherer (BFA 2011) is currently touring with Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre in their production of PETER PAN. In January she will take over responsibilities as Associate Director of Shows for the company, but the position will still allow her to tour in some of their productions.
Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre (or PFCT) is a professional touring theatre company based in Barrett, Minnesota and has been bringing a theatrical experience to communities across the upper Midwest since 1987. Prairie Fire tours a variety of original musical adaptations of classic tales.
Throughout the entire year, Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre sends two professional Actors/Directors to a community for a one week residency. Local children fill the roles, and PFCT provides everything needed to do the show. After a week of rehearsing, the cast will perform the play twice on the weekend.
Bailey Holland (BFA 2012) will begin a Master of Arts in Teaching at Lindenwood University next semester, with an emphasis in Speech and Theatre.
