Others from USF also drew praise in the regional one-play competition.
TAMPA — University of South Florida student Luke Holt’s Motoraku was one of two one-act plays selected from regional finalists to be sent on for consideration at the National Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Washington, D.C., April 11-16.
Holt was one of several finalists from USF in the Region 4 one-act contest.
They are among students in the Writing for Theater class, taught by adjunct professor Bill Leavengood, a St. Petersburg playwright. The class is part of the new Lily Dishman Playwriting Program at USF.
“You should be proud of your folks. They all done good,” said Todd Ristau, who was in charge of the Region 4 playwriting competition.
“And that’s exactly how I feel!” Leavengood said.
” What a great group of students! All of them participated as playwrights or actors in the readings,” he said.
“All five USF plays showed artistic promise and solid craft. The USF students attended workshops, readings and productions, even local professional productions. They were extremely supportive of each other and outgoing to students from other schools. USF can be very proud of all 10 of them.”
