Mankato theater students earn national accolades


The MSUM production of "The Odyssey"

The good news just keeps on coming for the theater department of Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Earlier this spring, the cast and crew of "The Odyssey" took their production to the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival in Ames, Iowa. There, their performance earned six awards and was selected from more than 1500 as one of four to be performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. on April 21.

This week, after returning home from the Kennedy Center performance, Theatre & Dance Chair Paul J. Hustoles learned "The Odyssey" received eight more commendations for distinguished achievement from the KCACTF.

Congrats to the ensemble!
