    Join us outside for a moveable feast of short performances. Each performance will begin in front of Bailey Library with Celebrate Good Times choreographed by Brigitte Rogers. Then the audience will stroll over to Ellis Lawn to see Thornton Wilder’s The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden directed by Andy Vaught. You may want to bring a comfy blanket to sit on the grass during one or both pieces!

    For your enjoyment, we are happy to present these performances to you with unmasked performers! For COVID Safety, we are asking all members of the audience to socially distance and wear masks. Rain venue will be the Trieschmann Fine Arts Building.

    Mission Statement

                "Theatre is a clear window into the mind, the soul, the heart of  humankind—the study of which should be the aim of higher education. Theatre brings life to learning."

         Offering students the opportunity to seek answers is the mission of the department. To that end we seek to accomplish these learning goals:

    • Attain skills and understanding that contribute to lifelong learning
    • Learn the art and practice of collaboration through developing and producing theatre and dance performances
    • Contextualize theatre and dance in the history of the human condition
    • Exercise critical and creative thinking skills and intellectual depth bt reading, analyzing, producing theatre and dance
    • Demonstrate commitment through rigor and care through work on productions and in the classroom
