Nancy McVean, Weatherford College’s long-time drama instructor and director, and Rob Laney, music director, are looking for men and women who can sing and act and are interested in appearing in the College’s fall production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

“The leads, of course, are mostly men, but the women have terrific roles, as well,” McVean said.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is a musical with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert. It opened on Broadway in 1961, based on Shepherd Mead’s 1952 book of the same name. It was made into a successful movie in 1967.

Weatherford College Talent Search program grant renewed

August 15, 2011 by Anonymous

Kay Landrum, Weatherford College director of student outreach and student success, announced this week that the College’s Talent Search program grant has been renewed for another five years. The U.S. Department of Education awarded almost $1.2 million that will extend the program another five years, approximately $233,000 per year.

“The competition this year was extremely stiff, with many existing programs being cut,” said Landrum. “Weatherford College won this award because it scored a perfect total in the prior experience points section. This is due to the dedication of Director John Turntine and his staff, Susan Stone, Shanda Blount and Keilah Villarreal.”
