As a result of a gift to King’s College from area natives Carmen and Sandra Maffei, the theatre at King’s College has been named in honor of their late son, George P. Maffei, II, a 1979 graduate of King’s, and an endowment has been established in his name to provide a student scholarship.
The scholarship will be awarded annually to a “student interested in participating in theatre productions.” The first recipient of the scholarship will be named this fall.
The King’s College Theatre Department will present Tom Stoppard’s comedy “Arcadia” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14-17 and Nov. 17 at 2 p.m., in the George P. Maffei II Theatre.
Winner of the 1995 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play, “Arcadia” is set in an English country house in the years 1809-1812 and the present day. The story follows two modern scholars whose lives are intertwined with the lives of the people who lived in the elegant estate 180 years earlier.
