“Celia” doesn’t speak. Her teachers want to know why. Her father is angry at her. Her psychologist wants to help her. But fellow student Todd only wants to get close to her. And, through persistence, bad poetry, and a bizarre audition for a production of “Romeo and Juliet,” he does. A gem of a play about love, psychology, and what happens to kids when they go unheard. The honesty of this play and the manner in which the characters have been brought to life will move audience and participants in a most profound way.
In “To the Lovely Margaret,” while attending college, the bookish Margaret is encouraged by her uncle and aunt to live life a little more fully.
Greensboro College’s Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.
The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.
