2017 marked PRPAC’s 35th Anniversary
PRPAC pays tribute to Felix E. Cochren Jr. who passed away in April 2019.
Mr. Cochren was an invaluable friend and resource to PRPAC. It was an honor to have him join us during our staged reading of HOME in 2016. He designed the original set for the 1979 debut of HOME in New York City for the Negro Ensemble Company. During the HOME talk-back he shared his fascinating and extensive journey as a scenic designer.
It was a blessing to have Mr. Cochren do the scenic design for the set of PRPAC’s 2010 production of Having Our Say, Delaney Sisters’ First 100 Years.
R.I.P., Felix! As associate professor of theater design and technology at Syracuse University, here is SU’s link to “In Memoriam”
PRPAC invites you to submit pictures, programs, and any archival material from past productions. Visit often, as this webpage expands to reflect the 35 year contribution of Syracuse community members.
