Student News

Kelly Levander, graduating this May with her MFA in Acting, was recently offered a job by Theater of the American South in Wilson, North Carolina. Most of the actors and actresses employed by the theater are professionals based in New York City. Kelly will be playing the role of Elaine Rutledge in The Miss Firecracker Contest by Beth Henley.

“THEATER OF THE AMERICAN SOUTH presents top-quality plays featuring professional directors, actors, and designers... It is a celebration of the culture of the South that spotlights fine Southern plays... All performances are in the Boykin Cultural Center, a showpiece vaudeville theater built in 1919 and beautifully restored in the 1990s.” Read more at http://www.theateroftheamericansouth.org/

Brandy Caldwell, also a 3rd year MFA student, was offered an equity contract by Berkshire Theatre Festival in Stockbridge, MA, where she interned last summer. Upon graduating from Regent, she will play the role of Clara Immerwahr in The Einstein Project at BTF this summer.

“Founded in 1928, Berkshire Theatre Festival is one of the oldest professional regional theatres in the United States and the longest-running cultural organization in the Berkshires. Now under the helm of Artistic Director and CEO Kate Maguire, BTF presents theatre that matters—world premieres, contemporary works, and classics that speak to who we are in our world today.” Read more at http://www.berkshiretheatre.org/
