Tallahassee, Fla. (June 28, 2011) -
Tallahassee Community College is celebrating another performing arts success. Theatre TCC! recently learned that its spring production of Chicago the Musical earned a superior rating from the Florida College System Activities Association. The show, which was directed by Krystof Kage, ran for two weekends in TCC’s Turner Auditorium this past April. “This was one of the best college productions I have seen--and I have seen many of them," wrote adjudicator Dave Hartley, formerly of the College of Central Florida.
Hartley also granted 20 individual awards to cast and crew members--a record number for Theatre TCC! Freshmen Becca Kellogg and Michael Varde, who portrayed Roxie Hart and Billy Flynn, were among the individual acting award recipients. Top technical honors went to Jessy Reaves, stage manager, and Megan Mellino, assistant stage manager. The adjudicator also recognized Dan Porten, assistant technical director of Theatre TCC!, for his scenic and lighting designs.
“This is the fifth season in a row that Theatre TCC! has received a superior rating,” said Eva Nielsen-Parks, director of theatre. “That level of success is a reflection of the hard work, talent and leadership that our students have demonstrated over the years.”
