I am happy to announce that following the national selection team meeting for the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival national conference in Washington DC, Gannon University's Schuster Theatre production of APE/ESSENCE, which garnered regional and international accolades, was given a final recognition. The KC/ACTF Awards Committee 2018 gave Commendation to THE COMPANY for Distinguished Achievement in Ensemble Generated Exploration of Literature for APE/ESSENCE, Based on Aldous Huxley's novella APE AND ESSENCE.
This is a national recognition given to the extraordinary work of our students, under the careful direction and technical direction of Alaina Manchester and Jax Vadney. We are immensely proud of this distinction, and are happy to share this good news with you, as our academic year comes to a close.

Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself." (Wikipedia).About STANDUP SHAKESPEARE: STANDUP SHAKESPEARE is a delightful, jazzy musical set in the backdrop of a cabaret using the text of the bard to tell the tale of the performers.
