Theatre and Dance
Theatre and Dance occupies a central place in Wooster's cultural life and draws on the creative energies of many students, both majors and non-majors. Each season offers students opportunities to develop their skills as writers, performers, directors, designers, technicians, or dancers. Wooster offers a broad base in the liberal arts on which to build a theatre and dance focus on the artist/scholar/advocate model. That model informs the department's wide-ranging production season and course offerings. The small college atmosphere provides a chance for close interaction with faculty from all departments and gives many students the chance to participate in both Freedlander and Shoolroy Theatres on campus.
Senior Weekend: Funnyhouse of a Negro
By Adrienne Kennedy
Directed by Tashiyanah Hutchins
Shoolroy Theatre, 7:30 p.m., February 17 & 18, 2017
Funnyhouse of a Negro is a depiction of racism internalized. Sarah's mind becomes a living playground for her "selves," figures of history who tell her that White is superior to Black. Praising her light skinned mother and hating her dark-skinned father, Sarah tries to find a place for herself in this black-and-white world. Freedlander Box Office opens on Monday, February 13, 2017.
