  • Members of Dance Workshop create original works that are performed at departmental concerts through the year and may be accepted for performance at any of a number of regional and national conferences.
  • Comprised of all undergraduate students in theatre, the Bonstelle Company elects officers on an annual basis. An initial meeting is scheduled by the department at a day-long Bonstelle Orientation for all majors. To help build esprit de corps, the company uses upper-class mentors working with incoming freshmen. Subsequent meetings are scheduled by the students, usually once a month, and activities such as bowling, theme parties, open mic nights, improvs, etc, take place.
  • In the second semester, theatre majors may join Performance Exchange, a troupe of actors who take up residencies in area schools, work around a theme, devise a play and work intensely with younger students. Contact Asst. Prof. Mary Anderson.
  • Students are invited from throughout campus to participate in Difference Matters, an initiative that uses drama as a catalyst to explore intercultural communication. Contact Lecturer Mary Cooney.
