Our 2012 Scholarship recipient, Joseph Franjoine
This year's winner displays a passion for the technical aspects of stage productions all while maintaining an excellent academic record.
His passion for technical workings behind the scenes was recognized early in his middle school years and was encouraged all through high school. The technical work done back stage is often overlooked when audiences applaud the actors during a curtain call. However, this side of theatrical work is just as critical to the success of all theatrical productions.
Joseph will be continuing his education at The University of Buffalo as a Technical Theater major. While attending U.B. Joseph will continue to work as a technical assistant for Litetrix, a local company specializing in the technical aspects of theater.
Aurora Players is honored to award the 2012 Aurora Players scholarship to Joseph. We wish him well.
