TFMS Alumni: Where Are They Now?
While at SMCM, Paul directed the White Room production of Chekhov's "The Three Sisters," appeared as Don Armado in Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost and as Agamemnon in Aeschylus's Agamemnon, and crafted a new translation/adaptation of Frank Wedekind's "Spring Awakening" for his St. Mary's Project. ("Spring Awakening" subsequently received a stage reading in the Kennedy Center's 2007 Page to Stage Festival.)
Judy was a two-time recipient of the Arts Alliance Award for Excellence in Film and Media Studies (2008, 2009) at SMCM for her classroom and studio work, and was an accomplished stage performer during her time at the college.
Since graduation, Adam has worked as an actor, educator, and an acting educator with a number of different theater groups and schools in the D.C. area as well as a half-year stint in Americorps.
Adam misses his time at St. Mary's and encourages students to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge offered by the amazing faculty of the TFMS department!
Since graduating from SMCM, Josh has performed at Mystery Dinner Playhouse in Arlington, VA and became a company member of The Shakespeare Factory Players in Sykesville, MD. In addition, he has directed several well-received plays in Baltimore and Annapolis and has acted regionally in D.C., Baltimore, and Virginia.
While at SMCM, Josh was an avid performer and director. He acted in several main stage shows, including The Serpent, The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and The Balcony, and with the world-famous Bread and Puppet Theater during its residency in fall 2008. He directed several shows for the student-run performance space, The White Room, for which he served as president, and on the main stage, for which he produced his St. Mary's Project in theater, Eric Bogosian's subUrbia, for the 2008-2009 theater season.
Molly was the first recipient of the Arts Alliance Award for Excellence in Film and Media Studies at SMCM for her classroom and scholarly work, including for her SMP thesis on Latin American Revolutionary Cinema.
After graduation, Graham first substitute taught in the St. Mary’s County public schools, then began teaching full-time at Great Mills High School (2005-2007). Finding teaching to be more full of inherent failure and rejection than an acting career could possibly be, he moved on, vowing still to return to grad school one day and then teach again.
When Graham left public school teaching, he joined the community of professional theatre artists in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. metro area as an actor, producer, critic, and clown. Since fall 2008, he has worked continuously as an actor, performing with various area companies, including: Faction of Fools (D.C.'s commedia dell'arte theater company), with whom he is an associate artist; the legendary (now defunct) Baltimore Shakespeare Festival; Bay Theatre in Annapolis; Constellation Theatre; WSC Avant Bard; the Maryland Renaissance Festival; the Washington Revels; Happenstance Theater; American Century Theater; Molotov Theatre; Fells Point Corner Theater; Mobtown Players; and the Theatrical Mining Company. He is a regular performer at D.C.'s Clown Cabaret in his character of Nebbishy Neville. He and SMCM alum Allison M. C. Clapp have also collaborated to co-found an environmental and interactive theatre company, Cloudism, which premiered in D.C. with the 2011 Capital Fringe production of "cloudism". Graham is also a critic with Maryland Theatre Guide, and has appeared in several short films.
