SNAPtv is a hybrid, sketch comedy, talk show produced as an online web series that mimics the characteristics of a semi-scripted Reality-Television series and combines the elements of a talk show ...


Jane Eyre, Diane C. Merchant, Robert Clements, Tim Phipps, Rebecca M. Baker, Rebekah Priebe 2017 Director

Jane Eyre, Diane C. Merchant, Robert Clements, Tim Phipps, Rebecca M. Baker, Rebekah Priebe

Rebekah Priebe, M.A., M.F.A.

This new adaptation of the beloved Gothic novel imaginatively incorporates haunting visual images, dreamlike memories and innovative staging. Orphaned Jane Eyre overcomes her lonely and abusive childhood to become an accomplished governess for Mr. Rochester’s ward at mysterious Thornfield, a place with dark and terrifying secrets. Her psychological journey allows her to triumph over the oppression of the Victorian era, in a script that Chicago Magazine called “a tide of loving and sure storytelling that treats its audience with reverence and respect.”

When fast-talking Harold Hill hears that no traveling salesman has ever won over stubborn River City, Iowa, he decides to give it a try! His biggest challenge is Marian the librarian, and in the process of trying to charm her, he falls in love himself. The Music Man celebrates a terrific score of marches, love songs and Barbershop quartets, along with great dance numbers and a family-friendly story.

The Diary Of Anne Frank, Diane C. Merchant

Theatre Productions

The Diary of Anne Frank tells the story of a young Jewish girl and her family during the German World War II occupation of the Netherlands. The play explores themes of persecution, coming of age during wartime, and Jewish identity in a world turned upside down by hatred. Anne’s unique perspective, recorded in her personal diary discovered after the war had ended, attests to her hope for all people to someday live without fear. The New York Daily News described the play as having “so much beauty, warm humor, gentle pity … that it is difficult to imagine how this ...


Theatre For Social Change: Histories & Applications, Samantha J. Hageman 2017 Ursinus College

Theatre For Social Change: Histories & Applications, Samantha J. Hageman

Theater Summer Fellows

Theater is not only an art form, but also a method of communication and community-building. My research investigates how theater can be used to create social change. I study approaches to using theater as a vehicle for social change and a tool to communicate diverse perspectives and cultivate empathy. My work focuses on a history of theater for social change, examples of theater for social change including plays and performance pieces, and ways of both creating and teaching theater for social change. My project culminates in an annotated bibliography, a research paper, an original theater for social change monologue, and ...

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

This section of the journal collates articles and other content arising from The Art of Participation Forum, which took place on the 7th & 8th of May, 2016, at the University of Kent in Canterbury, UK. The event brought together an international group of artists and academics who are involved in participatory arts in a variety of ways and who hail from the many corners of this wide field of activity. We wanted to explore the inherently practical phenomenon of participatory arts by doing as well as discussing, which meant that the Forum took a practice-as-research approach. To this end, we ...


Participatory Theatre As A Practice As Research Tool For Engaging With Young Men To Interrogate Masculinity And Hiv In Malawi, Zindaba Chisiza 2017 University of Malawi, Chancellor College

Participatory Theatre As A Practice As Research Tool For Engaging With Young Men To Interrogate Masculinity And Hiv In Malawi, Zindaba Chisiza

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

This article is about a series of participatory theatre-based workshops that I conducted with a group of male students from the University of Malawi between February and June 2015. In Malawi, young men are at high risk of acquiring HIV because of pressure to perform sexually risky behaviours (not using condoms and having multiple sexual partners) in order to assert themselves as men. The failure to engage men in challenging and changing dangerous constructions of masculinity will continue to leave women vulnerable to infection and perpetuate the spread of HIV. Using workshop and performance vignettes I illustrate how theatre-based methodologies ...

Nervous Salomes: New York Salomania And The Neurological Condition Of Modernité, Margaret K. Araneo 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Nervous Salomes: New York Salomania And The Neurological Condition Of Modernité, Margaret K. Araneo

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In January 1907, New York City had its first major encounter with the figure of Salome. Appearing on three large stages in the city simultaneously, the archetype of the dancing girl quickly became an object of controversy. Her appearance at the Metropolitan Opera House in its staging of Strauss’s Salome resulted in public debate and the ultimate closure of the performance by the Met’s Board of Directors. The event brought attention to the Salome archetype’s already contested character. Salome arrived in the United States from Europe where she had been the subject of a quarter century of ...

Now Presenting: Uri Theatre, Allyson Schiller 2017 University of Rhode Island

Now Presenting: Uri Theatre, Allyson Schiller

Senior Honors Projects

Honors Project Abstract

In my years as a theatre student and practitioner, I have learned that the most creative people aren’t necessarily found center stage. For every actor taking a bow, there are numerous support staff who created the production that will bring actors acclaim. Without an audience, the work of these artists will remain unseen and unappreciated. Therefore, those who promote the performances are certainly an integral part of the theatrical process. Often referred to as “show business”, the ticket sales and revenue are essential to the health and well being of any theatrical organization. URI Theatre, like ...

Le Sacre Du Printemps: The First Rite (An Exploration Of Modern And Aerial Dance As Storytelling), Whitney Bates

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Le sacre du printemps, a ballet choreographed in 1913 by Vaslav Nijinsky, played an important part in changing the way the world thought about choreography. Since, modern choreographers such as Graham and Taylor have followed in the tradition of creating their own versions of Le sacre. This thesis outlines the significance of Le sacre. It also describes how Bates created a choreographic project using Nijinsky, Taylor, and Graham influences, and also combining modern dance floor techniques with aerial choreography.

Scenic Design For "The Metal Children", Joseph Bryan Farley 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Scenic Design For "The Metal Children", Joseph Bryan Farley

Theses and Dissertations

A scenic design for the play “The Metal Children” by Adam Rapp was created and performed by the steps of the design process used in the design program at the University of Arkansas Department of Theatre. The Metal Children presents itself as a multi-unit set. With a script that introduces five different locations, one begins to question how we move forward with every different scene fluidly and in a quick scene shift time. When beginning the design process, I had to look at the show as if it were a musical with multiple scenic pieces that would fly in and ...
