Student's Play Chosen for Regional Theatre Competition

Feb. 14, 2002 -- A one-act play written by University of Wyoming student Todd McCullough of Green River will be performed at the American College Theatre Festival regional competition Feb. 20-21 in Bellingham, Wash.

McCullough's play, "Rainy Day People," was selected as one of region's best in the playwriting category. The annual competition is for student actors, directors and playwrights representing colleges and universities in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. The top play in the regional competition qualifies to be performed at the national festival this spring at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

William Missouri Downs, associate professor in the UW Department of Theatre and Dance, directs "Rainy Day People," originally performed last fall at UW.

McCullough won the student playwriting competition at last year's regional competition in Anchorage, Alaska. He also was chosen as best scene partner in the ACTF Irene Ryan competition, to determine the region's top male and female actors.

Other UW students who will compete for this year's Irene Ryan award are: Anne Cloud, Louviers, Colo.; Jonas Dickson, Rock Springs; Kate Ewing, Beaumont, Texas; Bryce Gill, Stephanie Hanson, Bridget Karson, Brady Meier and Missy Moore, all Laramie; Keith Howard, Gillette; Al Rich, Colorado Springs, Colo.; and Brian Slaten, Fort Myers, Fla.
