AUBURN – Lewiston-Auburn’s Community Little Theatre announces that Alison Traynor of Lewiston High School is the 2004 recipient of the Eastman Scholarship.

The scholarship was established to honor the memory of Roger and Gertrude Schonland Eastman who were among the founding members of CLT. Eastman was a past president and he and his wife were strong and active supporters of the theater.

The scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who has shown involvement in the theater, displays academic excellence as well as furthering his/her education in the arts.

Traynor has performed in more than 20 shows, eight of them with Community Little Theatre beginning at age 9. She has also worked in the technical aspects of the theater, such as stage crew, costumes, choreography, makeup and light and sound operator.

A member of the National Honors Society, Traynor graduated in the top 10 percent of her class. Her high school years show a participation in school plays as well as performing in leading roles in theaters in and beyond the L/A area.

Traynor’s next production is the role of Ashley in the CLT musical premiere of “The Legend of Britt Collins (Name Changed to Protect the Innocent)” being presented Friday and Saturday, July 9 and 10, at the Great Falls Performing Arts Center, Academy Street.

Traynor has accepted admission into the professional performing arts program at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. She is the daughter of Timothy and Doreen Traynor and granddaughter of Leyon and Connie Traynor of Lewiston and Marie Donohue of Venice, Fla. and the late Eugene Donohue.
