Theatre

The mission of the Lindsey Wilson Theatre Department is to provide a nurturing and challenging artistic environment that celebrates our history and anticipates our future, and to enhance the cultural and aesthetic experience of our campus and community through quality productions and educational outreach.

Rationale: 

Lindsey Wilson's mission is to provide a learning environment that serves every student, every day.  Emphasis is placed on providing a strong, liberal-arts foundation for all students so they can appreciate the world from diverse points of view.  In the past two years the Theatre Program has grown and developed quickly; 6 students have graduated with the Theatre Minor degree, there are now 15 students working towards a Minor in Theatre (10 of those are planning to complete the Major in Theatre if it becomes part of the curriculum), the program has produced 10 mainstage plays, 2 children's plays, 2 Madrigal Dinners, and a Showcase of student-directed plays and acting scenes. The renovation of V. P. Henry has provided the Theatre Program with a first-class facility for theatre production and technical instruction.  The Theatre Program now has a chapter of Alpha Psi Omega - the National Theatre Honor Society with 7 members already and 5 more to be inducted this spring.

Program Goals:

The Theatre program is to provide:

1. Thorough knowledge of the main components of the Theatre Arts.

2. Appreciation of the historical and present impact of theatre on human civilization.
