Last month visiting instructor Hector Casanova and his class of juniors teamed up with MeltingPot KC and the Just Off Broadway Theatre to create a poster / playbill cover to promote the upcoming theatrical production, JFK - A Ghostly Evening. The project was put together by Hector in an effort to establish symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationships with other artistic institutions in town. The students got an opportunity to work on a "real world" project, with the winning design getting published, and this small independent theatre company got the opportunity to choose from 16 poster designs. All the participating students got tickets to go see the performance on preview night, Thursday, November 21, where their work will be featured in the lobby of the theatre. Congratulations to junior Katherine Dodson, whose work was chosen for the poster and playbill!
When asked about the project Hector said, "This project went very well, and we hope to continue to work with Off Broadway Theatre for similar future projects."
JFK - A Ghostly Evening will be running at Just Off Broadway Theatre from November 22 - December 1, 2013. For more information, visit their website or call 816-784-5020.
Congratulations, too, to all the runners-up!
