Theater Rehearsal and Performance

Taking THR 451 will involve participating in one of two focused rehearsal processes, led by faculty directors, culminating in public performances. Students interested in participating as performers, stage managers, dramaturgs or designers in either production should reach out to for more information. Most roles will be cast through our Try On Theater recruitment process.

About the Fall Projects

  • Play (section U01) is a devised performance directed by professional theater-makers Aaron Landsman and Associate Director/Choreographer Ogemdi Ude ’16 (one of Dance Magazine‘s “25 to Watch”), created in collaboration with athletes on campus. What does it mean to dedicate your time to winning at all costs? To keeping your mind in the game? To making your body more ideal? What unexpected ways are art and sport similar? We welcome writers, performers, dancers, athletes and designers who want to find the theater in games and fields.
  • Adamandi is a dark academia horror musical written by Mel Hornyak ’23 and Elliot Lee ’23, directed by professional director Georgina Escobar. In the haunting shadow of old institutions, a coveted prize is promised to those who deserve it the most. Students go to horrific lengths to prove their worth. We are looking for actors for ensemble roles, including roles that are explicitly intended for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ actors.

Prerequisites and Restrictions
