  • People: Tyrone Brown wins prestigious Drama League Fellowship

    April 19, 2010

    Tyrone Brown, Administrative Coordinator of Student Development and Seattle University student working toward a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Arts Leadership in the College of Arts and Sciences, has been awarded a Drama League directing fellowship. This coveted honor allows promising directors to take part in the Directors Project, an intensive four-month program with prominent New York theater artists.

    Brown, founder of Brownbox Theater, is currently staging Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" at Stone Soup Theater. On April 23, he opens "Pterodactyls" by Nicky Silver at Stone Soup Theater.

    “Brown is an outstanding director,” said Kevin Maifeld, program director, “and this award acknowledges his success and potential.”

    Now in its 26th year, the Directors Project has advanced the careers of more 238 talented young directors who have gone on to become artistic directors, associates, and resident directors at more than 45 professional theaters. They are directing on and off Broadway, at major theaters across the country and abroad, and in film and television.

    The Master of Fine Arts degree in Arts Leadership provides future arts leaders with an opportunity to merge the latest management practices of nonprofit organizations with the specific skills necessary to lead complex arts organizations.

    The College of Arts and Sciences, the oldest undergraduate and graduate college affiliated with Seattle University, offers 33 undergraduate majors, 33 undergraduate minors, 7 graduate degrees, and 1 post-graduate certificate.
