The Western Star - - CLOSE TO HOME -

Robyn Hux­ter of Steady Brook has been named this year’s win­ner of the Tommy Sex­ton Triple Threat Award, pre­sented to a fourth–year theatre stu­dent at Gren­fell Cam­pus, Me­mo­rial Univer­sity in mem­ory of one of the found­ing mem­bers of the award-win­ning com­edy troupe, CODCO. The win­ner is deemed by the School of Fine Arts to be some­one who ex­cels at act­ing, singing and danc­ing. While the theatre pro­gram at Gren­fell doesn’t usu­ally do mu­si­cals, Hux­ter’s singing tal­ent was show­cased in the school’s pro­duc­tion of Ed­ward Bond’s “The Sea.” She also ef­fec­tively used her skills and in­ter­est in move­ment and dance while direct­ing her fourth-year pro­ject, “Red” by Jor­dan Hall. Hux­ter, who will leave for Har­low Cam­pus in Eng­land next week to com­plete her the­atri­cal stud­ies de­gree, re­ceived a cash award in ad­di­tion to the pres­ti­gious plaque.
