George was my inspiration as a teacher, director, playwright and friend. He taught me to look for alternative avenues to the playwright’s artistic goal. George gave me courage to reach beyond the common, the expected, the typical and discover the untold messages between the lines of the script. He inspired within me to reach the “mise en scene” the total and complete scene for the audience and actors. He shared with my own high school and college students amazing ideas that inspired them on many occasions. As an author, playwright, journalist and and father, George taught me all I needed to know to light the stage with creativity and enlightenment. We all miss you George, but your work continues on in our own students. I owe you greatly for who I am as a teacher and director and playwright. Thank you always,Dr Richard D

I will always call you ‘Mr Sorensen.’ You were the first mentor in my life to recognize my talent and to spur me on for the rest of my life. With all my heart I will always thank you ?

Although I did not know George Sorenson, his legacy lives in the School of Theatre and Dance here at Texas Tech. SO many of our alums loved and appreciated his talent, wit, and support, citing that his firm hand and brilliant mind changed their lives forever. I do know that, in theatre programs, one man can make a huge difference. George helped to build this program, and as the Director, I hope his family knows that his legacy will live forever. So much love to the family, and to all those touched by his life.

Wishing his family comfort in this time of sorrow. Dr. Sorensen was a wonderful teacher and guide to me and I know he will be missed by so many that had the pleasure of knowing him. Kentucky Cycle was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and I was, and still am, so grateful that I got to be a part of it. I cherish those memories and the time I got to spend with him.
