GREENSBORO, N.C. — Andy Scott, a theatre/directing and stage management major who graduated from Greensboro College in 2012, is among more than 40 people who have been awarded Sokoloff Arts Fellowships by the New York performance venue Town Stages.

Scott is a stage director and filmmaker. His current digital projects are “Kool Aid,” an anthology web series that explores conformity, and “Call It a Witch Hunt,” a short film about witches (perhaps from Salem) in a toxic, masculinity-fueled office.

His stage credits include “Aphrodisiac” at Loft 227 in New York, “Rent” and “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” at Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre, and “Completeness” with the West of 10th Street Theatre Co.

Scott currently works in brand partnerships at A&E Networks.

Town Stages began awarding the fellowships this year for artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and content creators. The fellowships are awarded in conjunction with Sokoloff Arts, the charitable nonprofit that operates Town Stages.

Sokoloff describes the fellowship as part residency, part incubator, and part home base, offering “the ultimate creative freedom to grow.” It offers free access to shared spaces, rehearsal/performance/event space subsidies, and “the opportunity to be a part of a shared creative community, working together under one roof.”

Greensboro College’s Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.

Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and, spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.

Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, the college enrolls about 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal-arts program and four master’s degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features an 18-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.
