(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Jason Pasqua, Laramie County Community College theatre faculty, received an Achievement in Directing from The Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival award for the theatre program’s recent production of Richard Dresser’s Rounding Third. “This is an award for the show itself and everyone involved,” Pasqua said. The November 2015 production featured student actors Nick Wood and Daniel Johnson, both of whom received awards for their performances. Pasqua, who has been with LCCC for 11 years, holds a bachelor of fine arts in performance from the University of Wyoming and an MFA in acting from the University of Idaho. The KCACTF has grown into a network of more than 600 academic institutions throughout the country, and honors excellence in overall production. The achievement offers artists individual recognition through awards and scholarships in playwriting, acting, criticism, directing, and design. *Feature photo: Michael Smith/LCCC/Pitchengine Communities* #shortgo #news
