The measure of success for a college student usually depends on how his or her professor feels about their work.
Yesterday, four Clayton State Theatre majors earned a virtual "A" from Clayton State Theatre Director Phillip DePoy after their first presentation as the Clayton Theatre Tour Team.
Appearing at the Clayton County Performing Arts Center (PAC), Theatre majors Bryan Meadows, Kalani Fraser, Tiffany McClanahan and Tierra Canup performed "Sure Thing," a short play by David Ives, for approximately 85 Clayton County high school students, all from the Performing Arts magnet school, mostly consisting of 10th through 12th graders, although a few ninth graders were also present.
Clayton State theatre majors recently joined together to create the Clayton Tour Team as a means of introducing the Clayton State Theatre to local high school students. DePoy says their first presentation was a success.
"I believe I'm allowed a bit of pride in our theatre students today," he kvells. "We successfully executed our first-ever tour team presentation, and our students were outstanding. It could not have gone better, and we've already been invited back."
DePoy also notes that the Clayton State Theatre’s and the Tour Team’s relationship with the Clayton Country PAC was facilitated by Clayton State University President Dr. Thomas J. “Tim” Hynes. DePoy also thanks the Clayton County PAC and PAC Coordinator Dr. Anita Lloyd for allowing the Clayton Tour Team to use their forum.
