Performance Opportunities

In addition to a season of Performance Hours presented in the Alvina Krause Studio and in the black box theaters in the Theatre & Interpretation Center, the department also mounts mainstage productions, directed by faculty or PhD students in the department, presented in the Theatre and Interpretation Center's Josephine Louis Theater or Ethel M. Barber Theater. Performance Studies majors are eligible to audition for these productions and have often been featured prominently in them. Majors are of course also eligible to audition for any of the productions produced by the Department of Theatre or by any of the many many student theatre groups on campus.
