March 26, 2012 - Lukas Tomasacci, a Shickshinny resident and junior at King’s College, was recently awarded the Edward C. Snyder Memorial Scholarship from the Scranton Area Foundation. The monetary award was established in honor of Snyder, a local resident who had a lifelong interest in the performing arts.
The scholarship was established by family and friends of Snyder to assist a student at a local college or university who is being educated and trained for a possible career in the performing arts.
Tomasacci is a theatre major at King’s and has been involved with stage, broadcast and print projects at the College. He has had roles in nine King’s theatre productions since his freshman year and has been a member of the stage crew or orchestra for three others. He has earned the lead male role in three Shakespeare-related plays.
He is also the co-created “The Adventures of Harry Flynn,” an original radio drama broadcast on WRKC-88.5 FM, the student-run King’s radio station. Tomasacci also serves as the head writer and voice actor for the program, which is currently in its fifth season. The show was recently one of four radio dramas nominated for a national Intercollegiate Broadcasting Service Award.
Tomasacci also is a cartoonist whose work appears in “The Crown,” the King’s student newspaper.
