MARCH 20, 2013
Freed-Hardeman University Theatre professor Dr. Cliff Thompson made two presentations at the Southeastern Theatre Conference held in Louisville, Ky., in early March. At this conference, participants attend presentations, make contacts for future graduate school or employment and learn more about the profession.
One of Thompson’s presentations, “Actors as Saints and Sinners: Prejudice Against Performance,” focused on the history of anti-theatrical bias in the West. Thompson said, “Some spirited discussions took place during my presentation, which was welcome!”
His second presentation focused on FHU’s “Connections Series” and was titled “Cross-Campus Connections: Theatre as Catalyst for Interaction.” Attendees to this were impressed with the series and interested in obtaining more information about the Connections Series, according to Thompson.
Five students and three FHU theatre alumni attended the conference with Thompson.
