Studio Theatre

The Studio Theatre Program of the Theatre Division of the Department of Communication intends to provide production of an experimental and exploratory nature.

As an adjunct to both the academic and major production functions of the Division, it offers majors and non-majors who are interested in theatre the chance to explore their range of talents in a learning environment not subject to the more stringent requirements of a major production. It provides, more over, the possibility of performing characters, cuttings, scenes, acts, and plays that, for one reason or another, cannot be produced in the Main stage season. As such it is considered a training ground for actors, directors, and technicians, and healthy, helpful criticism is therefore a part of its nature.
