in fall CCRI Players production

Feb. 5, 2015

Brayam Renovales Brayam Renovales stands with his display for properties design and some props from the CCRI Players' production of "Circle Mirror Transformation." He won a national award for his work on the play.

CCRI Performing Arts students were honored during the Kennedy Center/American College Theater Festival (KCACTF), Region 1, held Jan. 27 to 31 in Hyannis, Massachusetts.

Brayam Renovales of Providence received a national honor, the Focal Press/Rafael Jaen Showcase Award, for his properties design for “Circle Mirror Transformation.” This award is dedicated to first-time design, technologies and management KCACTF entrants in regional entries. It is meant to inspire young practitioners and encourage their studies in these fields.

Respondents look for work that has design substance in one or all of these areas: clear concept or premise, clear dramaturgical or technical research, and clear specs or workbooks. It also considers whether there is innovation in the project's approach in the use of technology, materials, design execution, etc. (i.e.: a “green” approach, the use of digital software to facilitate the realization of the design, research on the use of new materials or an innovative presentation style).

The CCRI Players’ technical crew received the KCACTF Region 1 Merit Award for “Bug” for exceptional execution of technical elements and successful maintenance of the world of the play.

CCRI sent four Irene Ryan Acting Audition nominees and their partners, two stage management nominees, one scenic design nominee, one sound design nominee, one makeup nominee, one projections nominee and one props nominee to the festival.

Jeff Ararat and his acting partner, Adam Florio, advanced to the final round of the KCACTF Region 1 Irene Ryan Acting Audition. Kaisey Caputo (sound design) and Ryan Mundy (scenic design) each made it to the final round of their respective disciplines.
