He recently became the first student in the state to be named the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival recipient of the Barbizon Award for Theatrical Design Excellence in Costume Design.
Started in 1969‚ the KCACTF is a national theater program involving 18‚000 students from more than 900 colleges and universities nationwide.
Teague‚ who was selected for his work in the 2005 production of “As You Like It‚” joins the ranks of past winners from Texas State University‚ the University of Wisconsin‚ the University of Portland‚ Syracuse University and Utah State University.
“When I went to the competition‚ I had no idea of what to expect‚” Teague said. “When they called my name as the winner‚ I was absolutely flabbergasted.”
