State Fair Community College’s Alyce Wilson of Eldon, recent Theatre Arts alumna, has been recognized by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) for her role as Christine in “Be More Chill.”

SFCC’s Theatre program was invited to perform the musical at the KCACTF Region 5 Festival in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in January 2020, which was a first-time honor to be one of seven colleges chosen to perform a play at the festival. Out of the eight regional festivals, Wilson was one of only 13 students to be nationally recognized with the Distinguished Performance by an Actor Achievement Award.

“We are incredibly proud of Alyce for earning this distinction as well as all of her work at SFCC,” said Tim Wells, SFCC instructor.” She has great talent and skill, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

KCACTF is a national theater program involving 18,000 students annually from colleges and universities across the country. Since its inception, KCACTF has given more than 400,000 college theater students the opportunity to have their work critiqued, improve their dramatic skills and receive national recognition for excellence. More than 16 million theatergoers have attended approximately 10,000 festival productions nationwide (source: www.kennedy-center.org).  Region 5 includes colleges and universities in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
