Charles F. Seymour, Jr. Prize,
The Charles F. Seymour, Jr. Prize is to be awarded annually with preference for a junior or senior participant in musical theatre who has an interest in business studies or career.
Charles Seymour, Jr., A1973, may be best known at Tufts for founding Torn Ticket (now Torn Ticket II) with five of his classmates in 1971. An economics major at Tufts, he appeared in operas and musicals while studying conducting and voice. He was also TCU president, the assistant director of housing, the recipient of a Tufts Alumni Association Service Citation (while still a student), and the first person to direct theater in a Tufts dining hall ("Jacques Brel..." in 1973). He is the fourth generation of his family to direct theater at The Players Club of Swarthmore (where he specializes in major musicals and holds many attendance records over their 89 seasons). His daughter, Liz, is the fifth generation to appear on that stage. After Tufts he earned an M.B.A. from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania while apprenticing for the New York Shakespeare Festival before heading out to lead theaters in Princeton, New Jersey, and St. Louis, Missouri. He has also been the vice president of a major real estate firm, selling major investment real estate, and the senior vice president in charge of International Marketing for a major architectural firm. He now runs his own business, Cloche d'Or Productions, specializing in digital video, digital stills, photography, CDs, and web pages, and lives in Wallingford, Pennsylvania, outside Philadelphia.
