Student-written play ‘White Privilege’ selected for Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival

“White Privilege,” a play written by Marquette Theatre student Malaina Moore, has been selected to be performed next month at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Region III Festival in Madison. KCACTF is a national theatre program involving 18,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide that has served as a catalyst in improving the quality of college theatre in the United States.  There will be one performance on Thursday, Jan. 10, and two on Friday, Jan. 11.

Additionally, Marquette Theatre will hold a public performance on campus Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. 

The show will be held in the Weasler Auditorium, 1506 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online; a portion of each ticket sold will help offset expenses for theatre students traveling to the festival.

“Being invited to KCACTF for ‘White Privilege’ had not been something I even expected when writing the script,” Moore says. “However, I am very blessed to be able to take it to larger audiences and continue to impact and change people’s ideas when it comes to racial relationships and the concept of privilege. It is honestly one of my proudest theatrical accomplishments thus far."
