Welcome to brand new School of Theater website! We are near the end of the first semester in a year packed with change.
Our 2012-2013 season "CONNECT" acknowledges that we are on the precipice of creating a new reality in the College of Fine Arts. By the fall of 2013, the School of Theater will be part of a merged School of Dance, Film and Theater.
In light of upcoming merger, our 2012-2013 season has been crafted to incorporate students from across the College of Fine Arts. School of Music students and faculty are collaborating on our next production, Assassins, opening in December. In February School of Dance Interim Director Travis Gatling will choreograph his students in a prologue and epilogue of dance for our modern adaptation of the Greek classic Lysistrata. We began our main stage productions with the contemporary dark comedy by Noah Haidle, Mr. Marmalade, and end with a classic of the 20th century, Tennessee William's The Rose Tattoo. Capping the season will be The Seabury Quinn, Jr., Playwrights' Festival with two new plays, The Golden Hippo and Worse Than Tigers written by School of Theater graduate playwrights.
Throughout our CONNECT season, we endeavor to stimulate you to feel a new connection to live theater. With our new website we endeavor to connect to all current students, faculty, staff and alumni. We know it's not perfect yet, so if you have helpful suggestions please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
