Get Involved

“ I have been thinking of my time at HSU often since then and I wanted to take a moment to reach out to you all and say hello and thank you. Although I wasn't a major, the HSU drama department provided me with all kinds of chances to get on stage, from little black box shows to big budget proscenium shows,   telling stories, digging in, practicing, thriving, failing sometimes, learning...I loved it. So, yeah, thank you.  ” 

Patrick Jones, Class of 2000

Performance Opportunities

Auditions for "Anton in Show Business"

Auditions for "Anton in Show Business" will be held Sunday, August 30th from 5-9 p.m. in the Gist Hall Theatre (Rm 219).  We will be doing cold readings only - Callbacks will be held the same night! For additional information on roles, please come by the TFD department office in TA 20.

"Anton in Show Business" is the winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Steinberg New Play Award!

All of the roles (male and felmae) are intended to be played by women. The script is written for 7 actors, with 3 of the actors playing 3 or more very distinct roles. The Playwright also calls for 6 scene/costume changers all dressed in contemporary clothes (black), and who are on stage throughout the show. All scene and some costume changes take place on stage and so these roles are very important and should be be performed in character.

There are many performance opportunities in our active production season. These opportunities include theatre, physical theatre, dance, and acting in films.

Our theatre program covers a variety of plays by the masters, contemporary playwrights, and student originals.

Dance performances include faculty and student choreography, with one mainstage production and two informal showings each year.

Physical theatre is featured through original work in different seasons.

Musicals, in collaboration with the music department, provide an array of opportunities for students every other year.

Film productions and screenings take place throughout the year with a special focus on the Humboldt Film Festival.


Film Opportunities

Film Productions happen year-round and include a range of opportunities for performers and technical crew of varying skill levels. Involvement in the Humboldt Film Festival is a great way for new students to meet people and join the film community.
