The Kennedy Center's ACTF: The Tempest Reloaded

Technical Wizardry Brings Recognition to HFCC's 'The Tempest'

Times Herald Jan. 14, 2004

Henry Ford Community College's Theater program is taking its act on the road, and they couldn't be happier. HFCC's staging of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" is one of 10 college theater productions in the Midwest to be chosen as a Kennedy Center American Theater Festival regional winner from among 42 colleges in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin.

With that honor came an invitation to be among 1,600 theater students and instructors at the 36th annual KCACTF Region III festival and competition at Illinois State University in Normal, Ill.
