On Tuesday, April 8 the works of six Lorain County Community College student playwrights were given staged readings and adjudicated at the Stocker Center, Studio Theatre.
The LCCC Playwriting Contest is part of GLT’s Surround series of free events presented across Northeast Ohio. Each participating playwright is a students in Dr. Daniel Cleary’s Playwriting for Stage and Screen course, and part of this year’s competition was that writers consider themes present in Shakespeare’s As You Like It as part of their writing process.
Tuesday night these ten-minute plays were read by student actors from Professor Dave Cotton’s acting for theater classes, and evaluated by Northeast Ohio playwrights Christine Howey, Margaret Lynch, Eric Schmiedl, Michael Oatman and GLT Educational Outreach Associate David Hansen.
First Place was awarded to The Cracks in Our Foundations by Krista Price, and Second Place to Spontaneous Tom by Emily Bittita and these two works will receive fully-staged, script-in-hand performances, performed by Great Lakes Theater actor-teachers and directed by David Hansen on Tuesday, April 29 at 7:30 PM at the Stocker Center, Studio Theatre. This performance is free and open to the public.
Third Place was awarded to Switch by Cameron Dobos. Special thanks to LCCC Director of Theater Jeremy K. Benjamin for his great work facilitating this exciting annual event!
