Howard Auditorium | Directed by Mark D. Guinn
KAB Man is an original one act play written by Professor Mark D. Guinn, in conjunction with Louisiana Tech’s Advanced Acting Class of 2010-2011. It is an action packed, fast paced show, featuring characters based off the Keep America Beautiful campaign and website, which is dedicated to informing citizens on the dangers of littering and pollution. The stakes are high for our heroes, KAB Man, Kee-La-Belle, and K-Linc, who must wrestle Louisiana from the grimy hands of the evil villain, Big Pollution, and his minions of muck. It is these eco-friendly warriors that protect our air, our water, and our baby pelicans, much to the chagrin of the League of Trash. The 2010 production of KAB Man garnered national acclaim, culminating in winning the Creativity and Outreach in Media Award from the Keep America Beautiful campaign. Louisiana Tech Department of Theatre is pleased to announce a grant from Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KLB) Inc. for its Fall, 2012 production of KAB Man.
