The Rod Wilson 24-Hour Ten Minute Play Festival

The Rod Wilson 24-Hour Ten Minute Play Festival continued its tradition for its fourth consecutive year this past summer at Mountain View College. This annual program brings together alumni, students, directors, playwrights and actors from the DFW community. According to Amy Jackson, faculty of the Theater Department at MVC, the festival helps students and alumni build relationships with professionals in the field of theater production. "They get to work with directors and actors, and remain in contact with them for future projects." As an alumnus, Jamaal Quassim Baty is motivated to participate in the program because it is a way to give back to the institution. "We got a lot of good training from the people at Mountain View, and what I learned and gained from Mountain was far more valuable than what I paid for." For Michael Duffey 04', the festival helps students learn more about it takes to build a career in the field. The festival is named after Rod Wilson, a former faculty member who was instrumental in the organization of the Mountain View College Conservatory.
