Senior Recitals

All theater majors are required to produce a senior recital as the culmination of their studies in the theater department. Students are responsible for managing all production aspects for their senior recital, often working with other students to fill production roles. A recital may take many different forms, for example the production of an original piece (KOLO), a selection of one acts (for example, Discovery Channels), or a deeper involvement in a Mainstage production (for example, Hillary Knox’s stage management and other duties in HONK!).
