The Power of One: Theatre Festival

The Power of One: Theatre Festival
Directed by Rob Gander
Virtual performances open to public April 23 at 7:30 p.m.

Only one audience member will be invited to the theatre with the lone actor who has written the show for that individual audience member during a live performance. 18 actors will perform at different times for 18 audience members individually. The stories the actors have written will have broad appeal and serve as a time capsule for what it is like to live in the year 2021 as a college student. All 18 shows will be recorded and premiered online for the general public.

The Power of One

The Department of Theatre and Dance is a collaborative community of artists and scholars – faculty, staff and students, aiming to achieve the highest level of excellence in their teaching, learning, research, creative endeavors and outreach to the community and state. Our students explore all aspects of the performing arts through classes, studios and hands-on experiences onstage and behind the scenes. Rooted in the liberal arts traditions, our program prepares students with the skills necessary to pursue a variety of careers in the performing arts and beyond.

Our student body currently consists of 83 undergraduate majors and 77 minors. These students are pursuing their degrees in acting, dance, design and technology and musical theatre. Additionally, students from across campus regularly engage in both production and course work to enhance their liberal arts education.
