Types of student projects and productions
The Department of Theater supports multiple production opportunities in the Bentley Theater each term, ranging in scope from straightforward creative endeavors requiring no technical support to fully-realized and designed theatrical productions. Department-sponsored student production/performance opportunities fall into one of four categories:
- Full Productions: a fully-realized theatrical production inclusive of a full creative team and design elements.
- Workshop Projects: a production opportunity offering faculty mentorship and some technical support.
- Studio Lab Projects: a minimal-tech opportunity for the development and exploration of new or experimental work.
- YourSpace Performances: performance space only. Available to all students, regardless of experience.
The YourSpace program is open to the entire campus; all other production opportunities are available to majors, minors, and other students with a demonstrated track record of experience within the department. Relevant coursework is required for students directing workshops or full productions.
Proposals for each of these types are typically due to the Department Administrator at the end of the first week of each term; click here for term-specific deadlines.
