Mirirai Sithole ’12

Last January, Mirirai Sithole ’12 garnered a rave New York Times review for her performance in the Classic Stage Company’s (CSC) production of Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children. Recently, she followed up that rare achievement with another one.

CSC just announced that Sithole is the recipient of its Rosemarie Tichler Fund grant, which awards $3,000 to assist young actors who have appeared in the CSC.

In the news story announcing the grant, CSC mentioned that, through the grant, it “hopes to make a difference in the lives of young actors at the start of their careers as well as to heighten awareness in the community to the specific needs of actors.”

Sithole recently spoke to AU VU magazine about her acting accomplishments, including roles in Azia Ansari’s Master of None and Broad City.
