Local News

Some local theater students are being awarded for their efforts with just their voices.

The St. Ambrose University Theater Department won first-place for Best Radio Drama in the National Intercollegiate Broadcasting Competition.

They did it with the help of the KALA radio staff.

It’s a play written over a hundred years ago called ‘The Enemy of the People.’

One of the leads tells Local 4 about the rewarding experience with other seniors and castmates.

Their performance beat out schools like the University of Virginia, Kansas University, and DePaul University in Chicago.
