CSU Theatre Prof. Allan Byrne gets $20,000 Grant

Twelfth Night

Longtime CSU director and instructor Allan Byrne has been given the $20,000 Creative Workforce Fellowship grant by the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture, based largely on his work at the Factory Theatre. CPAC's award "are given as a resource to assist artists in researching, developing or completing a body of work. Each award can be expended for any purpose that advances the Fellow’s artistic work and professional development."
The Oresteia

Mr. Byrne is the second-longest serving faculty member at the CSU Department of Theatre and Dance, and has provided many of the highlights during the departments recent renaissance, including directing last year's The Oresteia (left) and performing in Oleanna in a joint production with Charenton Theatre Company (on whose board of directors he also serves).

Mr. Byrne is already making the best of his fellowship; this summer he directed Titus Andronicus for the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival and attended an international workshop on the Meisner acting technique.

  1. Hi Allan! I've been trying to get in touch with you about footage I have of us in the 4th Annual AEA review. I've been archiving my 100 years of video footage (for what, I don't know) and came upon the only tape of the many revues we did. If you are Facebook, I have it posted on my page. If you don't have FB I can post it on my YouTube channel, LipschtickProduction.

    Anyway, I thought it would be something you'd want to revisit. We certainly were young! Happy New Year!
