A unique opportunity to explore ideas through creative dramatic and musical expression
The First-Year Production is hailed by many as one of the most memorable parts of their undergraduate careers — and one of the most fun! Graduates describe it as an invaluable experience in teamwork and creativity.
Students prepare for the event during the fall semester in the weekly Drama Workshop. In just 10 weeks of intense collaboration, students write, stage, and perform an original 90-minute theatrical piece with music. The First-Year Production is inspired by ideas and themes encountered in the First-Year Program, and is performed for the campus community and the public in mid-November each year. Audiences are always dazzled and delighted by the show’s quality!
