GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A spotlight is shining on North Carolina A&T for its great work in the theatrical arts.

The National Black Theatre Festival this year will highlight the work of NC A&T resident costume designer Gregory Horton, who is being recognized at the event's opening night gala for Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design.

Horton designed costumes for multiple productions put on by NC A&T, including "In the Red and Brown Water" by Tarrell Alvin McCraney, who recently won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for "Moonlight."

In addition to Horton's recognition, the NC A&T Theatre Arts Program's production of McCraney's "In the Red and Brown Water" will be performed for the NBTF Collegiate Fringe Festival.

The production got rave reviews during its April run.

NBTF is scheduled to run from July 31 to August 5 in Winston-Salem.
