SBU alumna featured in upcoming movie, ‘Seasons of Gray’
BOLIVAR, Mo. — Southwest Baptist University alumna Megan (Parker) Wilson will be featured in an upcoming film, “Seasons of Gray,” set to be released to theaters in September.
“Seasons of Gray” is the inaugural production of Watermark Films, which is the feature film ministry of Watermark Community Church in Dallas, Texas. The film will be distributed by EchoLight Studios, which produces and distributes high-quality movies for families of faith. “Seasons of Gray” is a modern-day retelling of the biblical story of Joseph with a strong storyline of forgiveness and God’s providence. The official trailer for the film can be found online at www.seasonsofgray.com.
Wilson graduated from SBU in 2009 with a bachelor of arts in Speech Communication and Theatre. While at SBU she performed in “Everyman,” “The Triangle Factory Fire Project,” “Last Train to Nibroc,” “Little Women” (Amy), and “Fiddler on the Roof” (Yente). She was also the student director for “The Burial at Thebes.” Wilson received a nomination for the Irene Ryan acting scholarship for her performance as Amy in “Little Women.”
During the 2009 spring semester, Wilson participated in the Los Angeles Film Studies Center through the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities’ Best Semester program. While in LA she interned at 20th Century Fox Feature Casting Office. Wilson had a small role in “Aliens in the Attic,” which filmed during her semester at LAFSC.
Wilson is grateful for her experiences at SBU and says, “The SBU Theatre program taught me that we don’t have to sacrifice quality for Christianity. As believers, we should be the best storytellers in the realm of fine art; after all, we have the greatest story to tell.”
Meg married Nathan Wilson after graduation from SBU. They live in Dallas and are involved with local theatre, film and television opportunities. Meg currently serves as the Speech Communications Studies Director at Prestonwood Christian Academy, is a middle school theatre teacher and also teaches at Genesis Children’s Theatre.
