WIU Theatre and Dance faculty and students earned numerous honors at the Region III Kennedy Center College Theatre Festival in Milwaukee.

This documentary, by Western Illinois University Department of Broadcasting & Journalism senior Jose A. Gonzalez, shows the behind-the-scenes work that went into the phenomenal production.
