The Department of Theatre Arts accepts proposals from qualified students to produce their own projects. Projects can take a variety of forms such as working with existing scripts and new plays, creating a devised ensemble piece, or developing a one-person show.
Proposals are submitted by a “lead artist". A lead artist can be a designer, an actor, a playwright or a director. From the submitted proposals, the faculty committee reviews the proposals, interviews the applicants, and selects one to three projects to be mounted in the Ruth Marder Theatre the following semester.
