Duvall wins  acting competition

Lakeland Cultural Arts Center in Littleton recognizes John DuVall, managing artist director, for his award-winning performance of “A Life.” 

Written by Adam Bock, the 35-minute monologue was originally performed off-Broadway by David Hyde Pierce of “Frasier” fame. The piece was produced by Actors Collaborative Toledo, a theatre company Duvall founded with three other Toledo actors, including director of “A Life,” Jeff Albright.

Recently, DuVall performed at the American Association of Community Theatre Region III acting competition. He had previously won his state regional competition, then the state of Ohio competition. Duvall competed against other productions from Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.

The actor was recognized with the prestigious award for Outstanding Performer in a Leading Role, and ACT won Outstanding Production for the five-state region. 

Duvall will take his talents next to the national stage, advancing to the American Association of Community Theatre’s National Competition in June.
