Newman to hold dedication of the Lillian Taylor Gathering Space & Conference Center

Oct 25, 2012

As part of the effort to bring theatre back to Newman University, the university launched campaigns for alumnae of Sacred Heart Academy and alumni of Sacred Heart College. The campaigns raised $60,000 by honoring three women who were instrumental to the program’s success in years past – speech teacher Ambrosine Comerford, ASC and music teacher Salome Herman, ASC at Sacred Heart Academy, and drama teacher Lillian (Sister Theophane) Taylor at Sacred Heart College.

To cap off the campaigns, a room in the theatre area of the De Mattias Fine Arts Center will be dedicated to each of the three women.

Dedication of the Lillian Taylor Gathering Space & Conference Center will be at 1 p.m., Nov. 11 in the Fine Arts Center, followed by the theatre production¬†Something’s Afoot¬†at 2 p.m. The dedication is free and open to the public. For more information about the dedication call 316-942-4291, ext. 2167.¬†Information regarding theatre tickets can be found on the Newman online campus calendar.

On Oct. 14 Newman held the dedication of the Sister Ambrosine Comerford, ASC Scene Shop and the Sister Salome Herman, ASC Rehearsal Hall.
