University of Guam senior fine arts majors Joey Datuin and Robert Wang have been selected to participate in the Irene Ryan Acting Competition during The Kennedy Center American College Theater 48th Annual Region VIII Festival next month in Hawaii.

The festival—which brings together students from universities in Utah, Central and Southern California, Guam, Arizona, Hawaii, and Southern Nevada—is touted as one of the largest college theater festivals in the nation.

A representative of the competition visited Guam to watch the UOG Theater perform Fay and Michael Kanin’s Rashomon—a stage adaption of Akira Kurosawa’s famous film of the same name—during the fall 2015 semester.

Based on Wang’s interpretation of the wigmaker and Datuin’s interpretation of the woodcutter, both Tritons were handpicked to fly to Hawaii to represent UOG during the festival held Feb. 11 to 14. (UoG)
