Productions & Events
THE DEPARTMENT OF THEATER PRESENTS...
Many thanks to all who joined us for the 2021-2022 season at Swarthmore Theater. Stay tuned here for updates on next season!
For details on the productions and events from the 2021-2022 season, and all past seasons, go here.
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 Jean Tierno describing your area(s) of interest.
