BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Auburn University
The BroadwayWorld Student Center is a comprehensive Student Database listing college and university performing arts programs across the country making it easier for prospective students by showcasing programs searchable by schools, location, degrees and concentrations.
The Student Center also offers a show calendar of college and high-school productions where schools can upload photos, videos, cast lists, articles and other media content for each of their shows. BWW will be combing through all content regularly and will launch weekly feature stories highlighting productions locally and nationally that have provided us with this extra content.
This week, BroadwayWorld shines its spotlight on the Department of Theatre at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama!
Auburn University Theatre is a NAST (National Association of Schools of Theatre) accredited institution offering a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with tracks in Performance, Music Theatre, Design/Technology and Management. For information on degrees offered at Auburn, click here.
The department is housed in the award winning Telfair Peet Theatre and focuses exclusively on undergraduate theatre training offering students the opportunity to acquire and apply a broad spectrum of theatre skills rooted in a liberal arts context designed to promote a strong understanding of theatre history and literature, and provide students with critical thinking skills that will richly enhance their work as theatre performers, directors, designers, technicians, and stage managers.
Up next as part of the 2012-2013 production season is the Heather May-helmed LYSISTRATA with a translation by Ellen McLaughlin. The show plays November 8 thru 16. The season will then continue with DANCE BY DESIGN on January 24-26, SHE LOVES ME running February 21-March 2 and ELEPHANT'S GRAVEYARD playing April 16-21.
