Scott Regan ends long run at BGSU

Audience members at the recent BGSU presentation of “A Christmas Carol” may not have realized that, in addition to the play, they were witnessing the end of an era. The production was the last to be directed by Dr. F. Scott Regan before his retirement this month from the Department of Theatre and Film.

Recruited in 1982 to take over the Treehouse Troupe, an undergraduate class devoted to performing children’s theatre throughout the region, Regan has provided opportunities for hundreds of University students and, since the formation of Horizon Youth Theatre in 1998, dozens of area children to learn theatre skills. Under his direction, they have performed everything from Shakespeare to musicals to classic fairy tales and world folk tales.

Reflecting on his career, he said, “The contact with students is what I enjoy most, from directing the plays to advising—we have fairly small classes—and following them through the years and seeing them grow up.”

“He loves to work with young people,” said Dr. Jo Beth Gonzalez, who co-founded Horizon Youth Theatre with Regan. “There’s something about him that goes right to the passion of the imagination. It’s that ability and his capacity for delight in the power of the imagination that enables him to connect with kids, I think.”
