College Scenic Designer Honored by Kennedy Center Theatre Festival Recognition

March 19, 2014

Peter Lerohl, Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s Theater Department Scenic Designer, was selected The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) from 600 colleges and universities nationwide for Distinguished Achievement in Scenic Design for his work on Las Hermanas Padillas.

Anoka-Ramsey’s production of “Las Hermanas Padilla” was presented January 2014 at the Region 5 Kennedy Center festival in Lincoln, Neb.

“I feel so honored to have my design work recognized on the regional and national level,” said Lerohl. “Many designers in educational theatre do not get the opportunity to have their work recognized in this way. Many people worked very hard to make Las Hermanas Padillas possible: students who worked to constructed the set; student crews who carefully brought the show on tour and installed the scenery at the festival; Anoka-Ramsey alumnus Matt Gilbertson, who managed the shop and our load-in and load-out for the entire tour; and the production’s director, Blayn Lemke whose clear vision of this show and strong belief in our capabilities helped transform this production into reality.  The whole process has been extremely rewarding. A very heartfelt thank you to all involved!”

Las Hermanas was also presented in January 2014 at Anoka-Ramsey’s Coon Rapids Campus Performing Arts Center with a special benefit performance to help offset the costs of sending 23 students – actors and technicians – along with two faculty members to the regional festival.  Three Anoka Technical College welding students were instrumental in the creation of the set.

“Not only did Anoka-Ramsey and Anoka Technical College students work on this production,” said Anoka-Ramsey Theatre Faculty member Blayn Lemke and the play’s director, “our audiences for Las Hermanas  got to experience one of the best designed theatre productions in the entire country.”

The other KCACTF recognitions in the Outstanding Scenic Design category went to Mark Evancho from Middlebury College, Vermont for Pentecost, and Zach Gent from University of Southern Indiana for In The Next Room.
