2019-20 Academic Year
The Theater Dept's Representative serves as a spokesperson for the major/minor community. The representative is typically a senior theater major, elected each year by a majority of their peers. The Department Rep brings concerns, suggestions, and ideas from the students to the Chair and/or the Director of Theater, thereby enabling the student who initially brought up the concern to remain anonymous. The 2019-20 academic year department representative is:
Sophia Therese Kinne '20
Sophia is a '20 from Syracuse, New York. Her theater major has taken her all the way from London on the FSP to Majuro, the capital of the Marshall Islands, and even right next door, to Northern Stage for the E-Term in her junior fall. While on campus, Sophia has been involved in as many shows as possible, working wardrobe, funning follow-spot cues, acting, and more! Sophia has also been in the Coast Jazz Orchestra since freshman fall, so she spends a lot of time in the Hop. She enjoys studying the intersection of theater, society, and identity. Please feel free to reach out to her about anything at all!
The Department Rep is intended to give students a way to express concerns and/or communicate with the Department in any situation where they wish to remain anonymous, or if they simply do not want to speak for themselves. The position is not in any way intended to take the place of open communication between students and faculty. The office doors of the faculty are always open, beginning with Department Chair Dan Kotlowitz.
