Production Participation Requirement

Majors and minors in theatre are expected to participate actively, extensively and continuously in the production activities of the program throughout their enrollment as majors or minors at the university. Typically, this mean that a major is expected to work on some aspect of every major production and a minor on approximately half the major productions. Failure to meet the department’s expectations with respect to such participation will be considered in approving students for graduation. A student whose failure to fulfill this expectation is, in the view of the theatre faculty, jeopardizing his/her future graduation approval and will be notified of this situation, and for this purpose each student’s progress in the program will be reviewed annually toward the end of each academic year. Theatre majors may take theatre practicum for elective credit, but it will not be counted in the credit total for the major.
