Cheyenne actor and director Anna Katen sent this message:

This Friday, February 12, ADIOS will be presenting our Irene Ryan showcase at LCCC in Cheyenne.

The Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship is a part of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KC/ACTF) which members of ADIOS will be attending next week in Reno, Nevada.

Actors are nominated from college productions after an adjudicator from the region attends the show. These nominees then travel to the competition to compete against college and graduate students from all around the region. This year we have four Irene Ryan Nominees! Stephanie Haecker and Mark Schaad from Charlotte's Web the Musical and James Sweazea and Anna Katen from Coyote on a Fence.

Each Irene Ryan scholarship recipient prepares two scenes with a partner and one monologue to perform in rounds at the competition. This year, we're showing you what we're taking!! This Friday, February 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the LCCC Playhouse, all four Irene Ryans and their partners will perform their full audition for the public.

Admission is free, so why not attend!!?
