Add Your Voice to the Decision-Making Process on What Plays Do You Want to See Next Year

The theatre is a gathering place where a community comes to think together, to laugh together and to explore what it means to be human in this day and age. The Theatre Arts Department wants to hear what you think about they plays under consideration for production during the 2016-17 school year. Even if you have not had time to read the plays under consideration, come to the Dining Hall Conference Room on Tuesday, February 16, at 5:00 p.m., to hear students describe the plays they think will best serve the Earlham community and add your opinion to the decision-making process. A diversity of opinions from across campus is an essential part of this process, so please invite a friend or two to come with you.
