Professor
Jerry D. Allen
Jerry D. Allen,
associate professor
of theatre at
Lycoming, died
unexpectedly
Tuesday, Jan. 17.
He was 64.
We will all miss a great wit, chef,
father, grandfather, teacher, director,
actor, and costume and stage designer,”
said Lycoming President Dr. James
Douthat, regarding the veteran faculty
member.
Allen, who joined Lycoming’s faculty
in 1984, spent his entire career in theatre
and worked in virtually every area of
theatre production: from onstage acting
and directing to backstage production.
But costume and stage design was
what he enjoyed most. He created set
designs for 125 different productions and
costumes for more than 225 productions.
Jerry has touched the lives and
hearts of hundreds of students, faculty
and staff at Lycoming,” said Dr. N.J.
Stanley, associate professor and chair
of the theatre department. “He was
an incredibly talented artist, a great
storyteller, and he had a wonderful wry
sense of humor. He was always quick to
laugh. He was loved by many.”
Allen also had a special interest in
children’s theatre. In 1994, he founded
the Emerald City Players, comprised of
Lycoming theatre students, which brings
children’s theatre to area schools.
Allen enjoyed gardening and cooking
and was the author of four cookbooks.
He earned both a B.F.A. and M.F.A from
Utah State University.
Among Allen’s survivors are son,
Bryn ’99, daughter, Ashleigh, and five
grandchildren.
Gifts in Allen’s memory may be made
to Lycoming College, Development
Office, 700 College Place, Williamsport,
PA 17701.
