A festival for the development of innovative new projects initiated by Dartmouth alumni. Vox Theater (www.voxtheater.org) will be in residence at Dartmouth from June 29-July 7, collaborating on seven new works with Dartmouth students, alumni and faculty.
Theater is one of the oldest undergraduate activities at Dartmouth College. The production program is built on a tradition that dates back as far as 1779 and in 1928 it was solidly established with the College's appointment of a Director of Theater. The Department of Drama was formally established in 1967. In the spring of 2001, the department changed its name to the Department of Theater to better reflect the mission of the program at Dartmouth.
Many production opportunities are possible each year in three major productions, directed by faculty or professional guest artists; nine student-directed, designed and acted productions and three original student-written plays. Productions are open to all Dartmouth students; one does not have to be a Theater major, or enrolled in Theater courses, to participate onstage or backstage.
Auditions for the major productions and the student initiated productions are held at the beginning of each term. Information regarding the productions is posted on the bulletin board in Shakespeare Alley in Hopkins Center and the Theater BlitzMail Bulletin.
