Gannon's Theatre Program will be returning to participate in the International Collegiate Theatre Festival (ICTF) in August 2017. ICTF is a 12 day experience that runs in conjunction with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival - the world's largest performing arts festival - held each August in Edinburgh, Scotland. ICTF was developed to offer college and university the opportunity to perform and gain global perspectives in an international experience that compliments collegiate performing arts programs. In 2017, Gannon's Theatre program will be returning for a third participatory trip to Edinburgh, having first been invited to participate in the inaugural ICTF in 2011. We are committed to returning on a 3-year cycle, giving all of our students the opportunity to participate in ICTF at least one time during their college career.
This August, in preparation for participating next summer, Jax Vadney (Technical Director and Design Faculty) will be travelling to Edinburgh to participate in the ICTF Familiarization Tour (FAM). This 4 day submersion experience allows program directors to experience ICTF on an abreviated schedule, meet with ICTF staff and technical crew, tour performance venues, and gain knowledge about the experience the students will have in the upcoming year. FAM allows directors to meet with the other colleges and universities that will be participating in a year, discuss production concerns, network, and develop plans for fundraising, international travel, and more.
Gannon's production of APE/ESSENCE written by Fr. Shawn Clerkin, Director of Theatre, is a new work being created this coming academic season. Based on Aldous Huxley's novel "Ape and Essence", Clerkin will be writing an adaptation that will incorporate puppetry, performance art, devised theatre, and more. This production will be produced at the Schuster Theatre in April 2017 and then will be the production that will travel and be performed at ICTF in August 2017.

The application process was open to final-year undergraduate students, full-program taught master’s degree students, and visiting research scholars (master’s or doctoral level). Jenna beat out all other applicants from Mary Immaculate partner institution, undergraduate students, graduate students, and research scholars alike! With this scholarship, Jenna will spend the upcoming academic year at Mary Immaculate where she will enroll in courses to finish her bachelor’s degree.
When we asked Jenna to share her thoughts right now, she stated "I think it's a testament to Gannon's Theatre program and Erie's theatre culture because I definitely did not do this alone. But I am absolutely thrilled to represent the area. I just feel downright blessed."
Congratulations Jenna! We can't wait to hear about all of the wonderful experiences you will have in Ireland in the coming year.
