Theatre Program Receives Award
Lenoir-Rhyne’s theatre department recently received the 2012 North Carolina Theatre Conference’s NCTC College/University Award. The LRU theatre program, directed by Professor Mia Self, was singled out for encouraging students to become leaders and innovators in their field, and for supplementing classroom learning with a rigorous production schedule involving main stage shows and studio productions, as well as professional theatre internships.
Lenoir-Rhyne is an active participant in many NCTC programs. Professor Self serves on the NCTC Board of Directors and has been one of the primary coordinators of their College Discovery Day event.
Lenoir-Rhyne students also participate in the NCTC Fundraising Partner program, raising money to support scholarships and education programs. The university serves as a Scholarship Partner for our High School Play Festival program, awarding scholarships to the top actor and actress each year.
