Submitted: 01-29-2008     Name:Madeleine Cartwright Hometown: Department: Theatre Arts
News:“PS – I Love You,” a 10-minute play by Madeleine Cartwright, a senior theatre arts performance major, was chosen for presentation at the 2008 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for Region VII. In a field of nearly 70 scripts submitted to this year's contest, Maddie’s has been chosen as one of six to advance to the finals. The scripts were chosen by a panel of experts in Region II (mid-Atlantic region), who read the scripts "blind" (without any knowledge of the authors or schools who submitted). At this year's festival in Laramie, WY, award-winning student directors will cast and rehearse the plays, which will then be presented as staged readings. The winners of the regional 10-minute Play Contests are eligible to participate in a similar process at the National KCACTF Festival in Washington, DC in April.

News:I just wanted to let you know that I was recently hired on as the technical theatre and design instructor at Renton High School and have also been brought on as the Technical Director at the IKEA Performing Arts Center, our performance space which doubles as a very busy rental theater. Right now I am very busy developing a brand-new curriculum and managing the theater. There is no drama program here, but hopefully next year I will be helping to get that started up again as well. Also, as you may know, I got married last August and (big news) now my wife and I are expecting our first child this June! Yeah, life for me is a little bit exciting. I miss everyone at CWU and am so thankful for the knowledge I gained in ALL areas of theatre while I was there, I use it every day! I hope all is well there, I hope to come over sometime before the end of the year so I will have to stop in.
