Honored were:

  • Male Performance: Jeff Ararat, "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"
  • Female Performance: Marina Tejada, "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"
  • Set Design: Assistant Professor Luke Sutherland, "Spitfire Grill"
  • Costume: Leslie Ford and Brandy Lee Silva, "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"
  • Direction: Associate Professor Theodore R. Clement, "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"
  • Production: "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"

CCRI's Performing Arts Department continues to be a point of pride for the college, and we are fortunate to be able to enjoy top-notch theater productions and concerts right here on our campuses, thanks to the hard work of our talented students and faculty members. Congratulations to each of the students and professors whose work was recognized, and to the entire department for its accomplishments. We are proud of you!

Common Reading Project selection

TwelveYearsaSlaveThe English Department has announced that its Common Reading Project selection for the 2014-15 academic year will be "Twelve Years a Slave" by Solomon Northup.

Most recently made famous by the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, the text is one of many slave narratives that unflinchingly tell the story of African and African-American slaves in the antebellum South. The narrative, written in 1853, tells the story of Northup, who was born a free black man in New York.

The CCRI community is encouraged to participate by reading this selection. Learn more.
