Samantha Gibson receives Outstanding Theatre Award, 2013


Fri, Apr 19th, 2013
Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

Gerry Sullivan was the director of the Theatre at Saint Mary’s College from 1959-1967. If it were not for him, there would not be a Theatre Department today.

Those who create theatre in state of the art spaces, such as our Page Theatre, must always remember from where we have come. The Gerald Sullivan Award for Outstanding Senior Theatre Major, currently hanging in the Common Room, warmly recalls the continuing contribution of Gerald E. Sullivan by honoring those who contribute so much today.

The recipient of the Outstanding Senior Theatre major is someone who has achieved both academic and artistic excellence and has show leadership abilities and dedication to the Department of Theatre and Dance and to our community. This year’s award winner has directed 3 one act plays and has played leading or supporting roles in 7 main stage productions, 3 one acts, and countless directing scenes; including a mock trail. Our award winner has been on lighting, costume, and makeup crews as well as the Performance Center Crew and has performed with SMU Concert Choir, Jazz Combo, and Jazz Ensemble, as well as Gaslight, Fireside, and Blue Angel. She has spent some of her free time giving back to her high school where she has assisted in directing their shows. Summer work has also consisted of community building with several onstage roles and off stage responsibilities with Wits End Theatre in Chatfield. She is president of Second Page, vice-president of ritual for SAI music fraternity, and is the president of Alpha Psi Omega, the theatre honors fraternity.

This year’s 2013 Gerald Sullivan Award for Outstanding Senior Theatre Major goes to Samantha Gibson, of Preston, daughter of Sally and Scott Gibson, of Preston.

Samantha also received a Certificate of Recognition, that acknowledges the scholarly contribution of Samantha to the first annual Celebration of Scholarship.
