Cooper earns Florida Theater Conference Achievement Award

ST. PETERSBURG – Scott Cooper, St. Petersburg College’s associate theater professor, recently earned the 2017 Florida Theater Conference Achievement Award for College/University Theater.

This award honors his contributions to the cultural fabric of the arts in the college and university community. On Thursday, Nov. 9, Cooper will attend the Florida Theatre Conference at the Fine Arts Hall at Santa Fe College in Gainesville to receive the award.

“I am very grateful that people in the state are seeing what a dynamic theater program we have developed over the past seven years at SPC,” said Cooper in a press release.

In 1986, the Florida Theatre Conference began recognizing individuals in the state of Florida that had made a contributing effort in the area of community theater, professional theater, university/college theater, theater for youth and high school theater.

Cooper has led SPC’s theater program since its resurgence in 2011. Though the college began offering theater classes in the 1960s, it became a victim of budget cuts in 2002 and was halted. The program’s long anticipated return was heralded locally and now hosts at least two productions a year.

An award-winning set designer, Cooper started off as an actor in musical theater, but tired of that endeavor.

“I was in the theater a lot, and I loved helping work on and paint scenery and then decided that maybe I could try my hand at that,” he said. “Lo and behold, I was good at it and then I went to school to study it.”
