It is with great pleasure that The Kentucky School for the Blind announces that, Jacob Hack (grade ten), has been selected by Actors Theatre of Louisville to have a ten minute play, which he wrote last spring, produced in the 2016 New Voices Young Playwrights Festival. This is a great honor for both Jacob and our school, as his play was 1 of 8 plays selected out of 870 submissions!
Not only will his play be produced by Actors Theatre, but it will be published in their yearly anthology of plays and Jacob will get the opportunity to work with dramaturgs, producers, set designers, costume designers and actors to ensure that his play “comes to life” exactly how he imagined it while he was writing. The performances will be held at Actors Theatre of Louisville on April 25 and 26. Please call the Actors Theatre box offices to obtain tickets.
We hope that you’ll join the faculty and staff of KSB in congratulating Jacob on this outstanding honor!
