Under the Spotlight
The Drama Department is committed to providing a comprehensive theatre education to our students and bringing the results to the community through vibrant, thought-provoking productions. We currently produce one production per semester.
Many students who are interested in theatre are eager to begin their careers. The Theatre Arts Certificate program will give them sufficient training to be able to join the professional work force without obtaining a B.A. They will obtain a wider range of knowledge and skills associated with the theatre, increasing their chances of working in the theatre in some capacity, whether it be in acting, stage management, or technical theatre. The practicum requirement also gives them practical experience working on an actual production. Students who wish to pursue an A.A. or B.A. may still choose the Communication Arts/Theatre Option program.

Valentine leaves his friend Proteus in order to take up residence at the Duke’s court in Milan; but Proteus stays in Verona to be near his love, Julia. Meanwhile, Proteus’ father decides to also send Proteus to the Duke’s court, where Valentine has now fallen in love with the Duke’s daughter, Silvia. Proteus leaves, professing constancy and exchanging rings with Julia. The situation becomes complicated when Valentine asks Proteus to help him elope with Silvia, but Proteus realizes he has fallen in love with her himself. Julia decides to follow Proteus to Milan, disguising herself as a man. Deception, banishment, and kidnapping ensue in this comedy written by William Shakespeare.
