TJ's Dr. Lippert wins St. Louis Theater Circle Awards!

TJ's own Dr. Rob Lippert won the award for Outstanding Set Design in a Play at this year's St. Louis Theater Circle Awards.
At the ceremony, critics presented 35 awards for design, performance, direction, and producing for local plays and musicals. The nominees in the category of Outstanding Set Design in a Play were:
Ann Beyersdorfer, “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast,” the Muny
Edward E. Haynes, Jr., “Chess,” the Muny
Rob Lippert, “Godspell,” Stray Dog Theatre
Kristen Robinson, “Little Shop of Horrors,” the Muny
C. Otis Sweeney, “Into the Woods,” the New Jewish Theatre

As reported in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch coverage of the event, when accepting his award, Dr. Lippert "pointed out the tenacity of the people in the audience who continued making theater 'despite insurmountable challenges and limited resources.'"

You will be able to enjoy the work of Dr. Lippert and his Scenic Design class this spring (May 10) when the 8th-grade performs Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for the TJ community.
