The SRC Drama Program has produced graduates who have gone onto careers in performance, including TV and film actor David Pires and, most recently, New York stage performer Kyle Motsinger. A student from the 1990s, Jacob Welch, is a theatre professor and award-winning lighting designer.
In the years since founding director Bob Gorg retired in 2008, the program has undergone various transitions. Most recently, in the current 2013-14 academic year, the program has been in hiatus for the purpose of rebuilding. During this year, our “black-box” theatre production space is being extensively renovated and updated through the expert consultation of Jacob Welch.
Now SRC will launch the newly rejuvenated program in the Fall of 2014. As before, we will have an academic curriculum that includes acting courses as well as drama-oriented classes for humanities and fine-arts credit. We will also see the return of student-centered performance opportunities with planned productions in both fall and spring semesters each year. Finally, we will also reintroduce performing grants (scholarships) to recognize and reward the work of talented students. Audition/interview dates (March/April) for students matriculating in the Fall will be announced early in the Spring 2014 semester.
