Resources for Students

Participation in Theatre and Dance  classes and productions is open to all students. As a performer, designer, member of a shop or running crew -- students from every major on campus are involved with productions alongside students who are majoring and minoring in Theatre or Dance. 

Freshmen and transfer students are welcome to work on all productions.  The Department's Blackboard Production Site provides ongoing access to production, course, and awards information.  Students may contact Joan Gavaler (Department Chair) to ask to be added to the site.  [[jsgava]]

Become a member of our audience:  No show is complete until we share it with an audience! Audience and performers make a real-time, in-person, and unique connection during each performance.  Students receive discounted tickets to each production.  For students a 6-show subscription is $35; 4-show subscription -- $20; individual plays and dance concert tickets -- $7; musical tickets -- $12.  For more information, contact Box Office Manager, Amy Brabrand, [[albrabrand]].  Please note: Theatre Majors, Theatre, Minors, and Dance Minors receive 1 comp ticket for personal use on the opening night of each mainstage show.
