Actress Mary Louise Wilson’s New Role: SUNY Ulster Artist-in-Residence
SUNY Ulster welcomes Mary Louise Wilson, Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning actress, singer, and comedian as its Artist-in-Residence for Spring 2017. Wilson’s residency begins with a public Q&A session, where attendees will gain insight into her incredible career as a performer and teacher. The public program is on Tuesday, March 7th at 2:00p.m. in the Quimby Theater, Vanderlyn Hall on the Stone Ridge Campus.
Among Wilson’s accolades are a Tony Award for “Grey Gardens” and a Tony nomination for “Cabaret.” She receives critical acclaim for “Full Gallop,” a solo show about fashion maven, Diana Vreeland. Wilson’s other Broadway credits include “Gypsy,” “The Odd Couple,” and “The Women.”
In her role as SUNY Ulster Artist-in-Residence, Wilson will work privately with students in the Theatre Program throughout the spring semester.
Stephen Balantzian, Assistant Professor of Theatre and Coordinator of the Theatre Program says, “We’re thrilled to host Mary Louise on campus this semester. She'll bring a wealth of knowledge as a professional actor and teacher to young theatre artists. Mary Louise will be making visits to our Voice and Diction, Acting and Theatre Workshop classes. She'll be teaching audition techniques among other things. We're very excited!”
SUNY Ulster is a historically rich source of arts education and the Artist-in-Residence Program is an opportunity for the College to connect with the arts community in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
