Skidmore College Honors TIME STANDS STILL Producer Nugent 6/5


On Saturday, June 5 Skidmore College will present Nelle Nugent, one of the producers of the Tony nominated Best Play TIME STANDS STILL, the 2010 Distinguished Achievement Award. The award will be presented in a private ceremony held at the campus' Arthur Zankel Music Center.

Skidmore's Distinguished Achievement Award honors one alumna/us who has translated her or his Skidmore experience into distinguished achievement through professional work and/or community service. The recipient of this award is selected by the Alumni Association Award Committee and affirmed by Alumni Association Board of Directors. The first Distinguished Achievement Award was presented in 1984 and since that time, a total of 26 awards have been given.

Skidmore is a highly selective liberal arts college with a reputation for its creative approaches to just about everything. Founded by Lucy Skidmore Scribner, the college has consistently espoused the goal of liberal education as the best means of preparing for a life of continuing personal growth and of responsible and significant service to the community. Skidmore's programs, both those in the traditional liberal arts and those of a professional nature, represent liberal education in their common pursuit of academic excellence and their concern with sensibilities, values, and qualities that distinguish educated persons.

TIME STANDS STILL, written by Donald Margulies and directed by Daniel Sullivan, will resume performances on Thursday, September 23 at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street) starring Laura Linney, Brian D'Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Christina Ricci.

The production which enjoyed an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre this spring, has been nominated for two Tony Awards: Best Play, and Best Leading Actress in a Play (Laura Linney).
