UNCSA School of Filmmaking alumnus Caleb Ennis spent two weeks in prison this year. As an employee of Shining Light, a Christian-based performance arts production company, he helped to bring performing arts to a prison community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“I discovered Shining Light through a friend of mine who is a Juilliard drama alumnus,” says Ennis, who joined the organization as a guest director earlier this month. “Shining Light gives hope to people that society has overlooked.” Ennis was responsible for writing and directing two plays for the production company, leading team exercises that involved physical and emotional awareness and leading and directing rehearsals.
