The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) Region 4 Stage Management Fellowship was awarded to Georgia Southern University Junior, Gabrielle Scott.


Scott is also an inaugural cohort of the Cody Renard Richard Scholarship is a double major in theater and women’s, sexuality and gender studies. 


This will include Scott attending sessions with Cody Renard Richard, a stage management professional who has worked with Broadway and Cirque de Solie, where she says that, “I’m most excited about the scholarship because of the opportunity to form new connections within the technical theater industry and learning about different approaches and creating space for artists of color to be heard in the industry,”


Scott spoke highly of her professors whom she says have challenged her to allow her both to learn and grow while still being willing to help her through challenges when she needed it. 


According to the press release by GS Scott looks forward to a career in production stage management as well as working on live events and concert tours.

Currently Scott is assistant director of the GSU production of Much Ado About Nothing.
