Kennedy Award Winners

Mineola residents Alex Eisen and John Watts were recently named Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival winners. The two’s original musical, The Dark I Know, was produced last fall at SUNY New Paltz.

Eisien, a senior and theatre arts major, is graduating in May from New Paltz. Watts is a current student at NYU.

 

The Dark I Know is the story of a photojournalist and her son in Germany who become involved with a Jewish family during the 1929 to 1939 rise to power of the Nazi Party.

Eisen and Watts will attend the national festival in Washington, D.C. next week.
