LCCC’s Jason Pasqua receives national theatre award

CHEYENNE — Jason Pasqua, LCCC theatre faculty, received an award for Achievement in Directing from The Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival for the theatre program’s recent production of Richard Dresser’s Rounding Third.

Pasqua, who has been with LCCC for 11 years, holds a bachelor of fine arts in performance from the University of Wyoming and an MFA in acting from the University of Idaho.

“This is an award for the show itself and everyone involved,” Pasqua said. 

The November 2015 production featured student actors Nick Wood and Daniel Johnson, both of whom received awards for their performances.

The KCACTF, an extension of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, has grown into a network of more than 600 academic institutions throughout the country. The KCACTF honors excellence in overall production and offers artists individual recognition through awards and scholarships in playwriting, acting, criticism, directing, and design.
