Introduction to the Department

Theatre ClassThe Department of Theatre & Dance at Ohio Wesleyan encourages students—beginning in their first year—to get involved onstage, backstage, and in the classroom. Within the context of the liberal arts, we offer pre-professional training in the traditional areas of acting and directing, dance, technical theatre and design, stage management, theatre education, playwriting, literature and history, and arts management.

Many students in our department double major in another discipline, such as English, Politics & Government, Economics, Health & Human Kinetics, Zoology, Modern Foreign Languages, and Psychology.

By Anne Flanagan '87
Directed by Bonnie Milne Gardner '77

Eight wacky characters get snowed in during a gallery reception in upstate New York, and hilarity erupts over mistaken identity, secret schemes, jealous lovers, and financial ruin. Winner of three national comedy awards, this hilarious romp is a farcical take on celebrity and an affectionate tribute to loyalty and love.
Tickets: $5-students/seniors/faculty/staff, and $10-general.
Admission is free for Ohio Wesleyan students with a valid ID.
