Annual productioNS

The Department's typical "season" of performances consists of Production Ensemble (a professionally directed and designed full length production), Acting Capstone (a faculty-directed production with advanced acting students), Senior Company (a project collectively created by Senior Majors with department support), one or more honors thesis productions, and Night of Scenes (a biannual showcase of work generated in Directing I and Directing II). In addition, we typically present at least one major residency and performance by a distinguished visiting company. The overwhelming majority of this performance activity is for academic credit with intensive involvement of faculty members and guest artists as teachers, collaborators, and mentors.

How to Get Involved

Most productions are also courses, so the best way to get involved is to sign up for the corresponding course. Students can earn up to 1 credit for working on a department show. For more information, contact the show’s director (or, for Senior Company, Laila Swanson). If you are interested in getting paid to work on the production team of a show, send an email to Scott Cassidy describing your area(s) of interest.
