BWW Student Center's School in the Spotlight: Bloomsburg 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.
To kick off our Spotlight Series for the 2012-2013 academic year, BWW is excited to feature the students and faculty of Bloomsburg University in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania!
The mission of Bloomsburg University's Department of Music, Theatre and Dance is to provide a strong undergraduate education in the theory and practice of theatre and dance, to support the University's general education curriculum, and to enhance the cultural life of the campus community. The division's goal is to develop students' working knowledge of historical and contemporary theories and practices in dramatic and critical literature, design, performance, and technology.
Offering a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, the department offers offers opportunities to specialize in performance studies or design/technical areas, or an Integrated Studies program where you can combine specialities. A minor in Dance is also now available while the School of Music offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with tracks in music education, audio-video recording and liberal arts.
Alumni of the school have worked on Broadway, national tours, regional theater, television, film and technical theater. Check out the accomplishments of past students here.
The Bloomsburg University Players' 2012-2013 production season will start off with a production of 12 ANGRY JURORS playing November 7-11, followed by V-Day 2013; FLOOD STORIES, TOO; THE UNDERPANTS and the 3RD ANNUAL REPERTORY/ENSEMBLE DANCE MINOR CONCERT closing off the year in April.
