UMBC set to 'Tutor' at festival


January 03, 1993|By Linell Smith | Linell Smith,Staff Writer

The theater department of the University of Maryland Baltimore County will perform "The Tutor" next month at the American College Theatre Festival at Ithaca College in Ithaca, N.Y.

Sam McCready directs the play, written by Jakob Lenz and adapted by Bertolt Brecht.

At the festival, a panel of judges will select productions for the national festival held annually at the Kennedy Center in Washington. Since 1975, four UMBC productions have been chosen for the festival.

In addition, UMBC students Bonnie Webster, John Hansen and James Brown-Orleans have been chosen to compete for the ZTC Irene Ryan Acting Award, which is part of the festival. These students appear in "The Tutor." Mr. Brown-Orleans received the regional award last year.
