The National Selection Team at the 2010 Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival has selected “Closet Land,” a fall 2009 production at Meramec, as one of five possible productions to be presented at the Kennedy Center’s National Theatre Festival held April 12-17 in Washington, D.C. “Closet Land” advances as an alternate and will move up to finalist should one of the other four declines the invitation to perform.

“This honor ranks the Meramec Theatre Program as one of the top five programs in the nation, along with other institutions such as San Diego State University and Temple University,” said Michelle Rebollo, professor of communication and director of “Closet Land.”

During the final stage of competition, the play received excellent responses from other faculty and students and played to a house of approximately 1000 people. The Kennedy Center National Selection Team also awarded commendations reflecting Distinguished Achievement associated with “Closet Land.” This marks the first time the Meramec Theatre Program has been honored with Distinguished Achievement at the Regional Festival. Following is a list of those honors:
