Living the acting dream

Spokane’s Will Cowles Meyer is among the collegiate actors who will be participating at the Region VIII Kennedy Center College Theater Festival.

Cowles Meyer is a student at California Lutheran University. He plays a soldier and is the sound engineer for the school’s production of “The Trojan Women.” The play will be staged twice next month in Los Angeles in competition with plays by schools in Southern California, Arizona, Utah, Guam, Hawaii and Nevada. Four to six plays from eight regional competitions will be selected to be showcased at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

“The Trojan Woman” was adapted by Jean-Paul Sartre from a play by Euripides. This marks the fourth time a CLU production has been selected for competition.

Cowles Meyer graduated from St. George’s School in 2011.
