Theatre is a concentration of the Communication major

Curry Theatre is open to all students at the college. Participation in stage shows and our Improv Team brings students from many majors. Students practice and stage productions in Keith Auditorium and/or Black Box Theatre inside the Academic and Performance Center building. Theatre students also have access to practice space, green rooms, and a set construction area.

Productions include:

  • original student scripts
  • classics
  • comedy
  • musicals
  • dramas
  • student directed one-acts.

An active student supervisory board designs Publicity campaigns and oversees lighting, sound, props, and costumes; virtually all aspects of production. Glossy professional playbills are also student created, designed, and edited.

From the entry level Acting One, to the upper level Directing Seminar, the line up of courses and productions provides wide opportunities for student participation.

Some of our graduates have started their own successful theatre companies. Some have gone on to post graduate work at prestigious training programs, such as The Actors' Studio, The Neighborhood Playhouse, and Chicago's Second City. Some have pursued graduate work and found themselves teaching theatre at other colleges. Some have gotten their union cards in Stage Lighting or Sound. Some have found their way to Hollywood and jobs in network television, while others work in Improvisation and Stand-Up comedy.

Curry Theatre fosters skills that are extremely useful in non-theatre careers. Graduates have also found jobs in:

  • Event Planning
  • Public Relations
  • Human Resources
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Record Producing

Our faculty, which include professional playwrights, directors, actors, and Improv coaches, work closely with the students, mentoring and recommending them to internships, summer jobs, and graduate schools.

Prof. Gail Phaneuf Lauded by The New York Times

Award-winning playwright, director and Senior Lecturer Gail Phaneuf received high praise in the 'New York Times' for her acting prowess in the play "Small Craft Warnings" which ran in Provincetown earlier in the fall. The review calls Phaneuf's performance "supremely funny" and notes she turned her character "Leona" into a "whirlwind of comic energy tinged with pathos."
