This past March, current and former students and faculty members from CCM’s Department of Theatre Design and Production (TD&P) reunited during the United States Institute for Theatre Technology's (USITT) National Convention, which came to Cincinnati's Duke Energy Convention Center March 18-21, 2015. This is the second time that the USITT Convention's visit to Cincinnati also served as a reunion for TD&P faculty and alumni.
The USITT conference was last held in Cincinnati in 2009, at which time the department honored the founding faculty members of its BFA program: Paul Shortt, Steve Waxler and Suellen Childs.
