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.

In the not-so-distant future, a terrible water shortage and 20-year drought has led to a government ban on private toilets and a proliferation of paid public toilets, owned and operated by a single megalomaniac company: the Urine Good Company. Urinetown is a wickedly funny, fast-paced, and surprisingly intelligent comedic romp. (Source)
