Recently, a reputed dramatic website ranked universities around the country (outside of NY) that have stellar theater departments. It comes as no surprise that we are on the list. Seriously though, Georgetown has produced some great artists; both on stage and on the silver screen. Helllllloooo, Bradley Cooper.
I could gush all day about the theater community here at Georgetown as I am proud to be a member of it, and because of that, I encourage every Hoya to get in touch with their artsy side (like this lady) and indulge in some upcoming performances. There is a phenomenal amount of talent on campus, and it would be a shame to miss out on the transformative power of live theater.
The wonderful thing about Georgetown Theater is the unique approach and perspective the Theater major takes. It allows students to “broaden their knowledge of the theater, social justice, cultural criticism, and civic engagement by stressing the creation of new work, dramaturgy, and the history of performing arts.”
It’s so typical of us Georgetowners to take a “cura personalis” approach to theater. Our department and all of the dramatic organizations on campus are concerned with the spiritual, intellectual, and emotional facets of theater. It is well worth your while to see a few productions this year or maybe even participate in a few! You certainly will not regret it.
That’s what I thought.
