Clayton Van Winkle, a third-year graduate student from Garland, Texas, is a national finalist for the prestigious Gilbert Hemsley Lighting Internship. In addition, his lighting design for last year’s “Candide” won first place recognition at the Region V Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF), and he will represent the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film at the national festival in Washington, D.C., April 14-19.
“The ACTF honor was great, but the Hemsley was just huge,” Van Winkle said. “This is the premier lighting internship in the nation.”
