Angels in America: Part One: Millenium Approaches

Angels in America
Part One: Millennium Approaches
Winter 2012
by Tony Kushner
Directed by Carol Dunne

Each term the Department of Theater produces a play performed in the Moore Theater, a 480- seat proscenium house. Directed by members of the theater faculty or guest professional directors, the productions are open to all students, not just theater majors. The department is committed to presenting a variety of theater experiences. Everything from classical Greek to contemporary pieces finds its way to the mainstage. This year's line-up for academic year 12-13 includes Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches by Tony Kushner and The Liar by David Ives.

In spring 2010,  the Theater Department created a new collaborative work, Viscera, a new work performed by the Dartmouth Dance Theater Ensemble, directed by Ford Evans, Professor of Dance, in collaboration with Peter Hackett, Professor of Theater in Directing, Lorie Loeb, Research Associate Professor in Computer Science, and Dan Kotlowitz, Professor of Theater in Lighting Design. Another new collaborative work was presented in spring 2011, Undue Influence, dealing with the issue of sexual assault on college campuses. 

Auditions are the first week of each term. 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. The call list is posted on the bulletin board in Shakespeare Alley. Information is also posted in on our Theater Department website.
