"See How They Run" wins in Utah

IRS reduces VVC debt

Foundation," said Glaser, an Irene Ryan nominee. The other nominees who attended the festival included Kanai Williams, Chris Hook, Rachel Britten, Alexis Bull, Chris Higgins, and Jesselynn Kerr.
     The festival has a myriad of other activities for drama students. "The festival is a time of education, celebration and teamwork. Our students walked away from the festival having had the opportunities to attend a variety of educational seminars concerning theatre," said Ed Heaberlin, the VVC chairperson for speech and theatre.
     The KCACTF allows schools to present scenes from plays, which VVC has done in the past four years. New plays written by students are also performed, with their casts made up of KCACTF participants.
     Students can also audition for the California Educational Theatre Association, which provides drama students with valuable job and learning opportunities.
     To prepare for the KCACTF, drama students started rehearsing "See How They Run" again in January, and worked their way up to rehearsing the play everyday during the week before the festival.
     The drama department raised money to pay the $16,000 needed to take the production to Utah. They raised money through donations from businesses, the school administration and the Rams Bookstore. A benefit performance of "See How They Run" held Feb. 7 in the Performing Arts Center raised $2000.
     VVC is being considered for hosting the KCACTF next year. "It is between us and Cal State San Bernardino. If it is not here this year, they want us to host it in 2006," said Heaberlin.
     Ken Grey, the chairperson for the KCACTF in this region, recently visited the campus to help him make his decision. According to Heaberlin, the festival could bring 1,000 to 1,500 festival participants to VVC.
     Rude said, "The students did marvelous work in the play. The respondents were most positive about the show and gave us great feedback. We were pleased overall."
