Summer Theatre placed on hiatus
Clarion University Theatre’s 2013 summer season is being placed on hiatus in order for the department to assess the current model and focus on programming during the academic year. The hope is to relaunch a revitalized summer program in the future.
“With limited resources, we need to make sure our program is structured in a way that benefits our students the most,” said Robert G. Levy, chair, Clarion University Theatre Department.
The Theatre Department provides classroom and practical experience that enriches the lives of students and produces live theatre that enhances the cultural life of the university and the surrounding community.
“We are proud to provide a creative and collaborative working environment in which undergraduates receive the training and experience necessary to pursue careers in the professional theatre,” added Levy.
Levy noted this decision will not impact the 2012-13 academic-year program, which includes:
- Oct. 26-27 – Second Series, “Rabbit Hole,” 8 p.m., Hart Chapel
- Nov. 14-18 – “All’s Well That Ends Well,” 8 p.m. (Nov. 14-17), 2 p.m. (Nov. 18); Marwick-Boyd Little Theatre
- Dec. 7 – “8, the play,” 8 p.m., Marwick-Boyd Little Theatre
- March 6-10 – “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” 8 p.m. (March 6-9), 2 p.m. (March 10); Marwick-Boyd Little Theatre
- March 29-30 – Second Series (programming produced, directed, performed and often written by Clarion students), 8 p.m., Hart Chapel
- April 24-28 – “Seascape,” 8 p.m. (April 24-27), 2 p.m. (April 28); Marwick-Boyd Little Theatre
