NOTICE

Due to Utah's state of emergency the remaining performances of our season are canceled.

 

Dear Friends and Patrons,

The Snow College Theatre Department has been closely monitoring the unfolding circumstances related to the Coronavirus outbreak. As we are both an educational institution and a cultural center; we feel a deep responsibility to our community on many levels. Working with our faculty, staff, and Snow College administration we ultimately came to a difficult but necessary conclusion.
 
The most responsible help we can provide to our community, for the health of our students, artists, and audience, is to close the remaining shows of the season. Upcoming main stage performances of The Odyssey, our dinner theatre event Plays & Pasta, The Spotlight Series our one-act play festival, and all remaining LTI performances are cancelled.
 
We are grateful to the students, artists, and production staff who make these wonderful productions possible, and are heartbroken we cannot share all of their excellent work. Efforts are being made to ensure students still have creative outlets and are able to explore the wondrous field of theatre in a manner both safe and responsible.
 
Ticket buyers may call the box office at (435) 283-7478 or email sherry.nieslon@snow.edu to request a refund.  We have established a policy for both individual purchases and a partial refund for season ticket holders should you request it. We ask for your patience in the matter considering the extraordinary situation.
 
This was a difficult decision. We thank you so much for your continued support, generosity, and understanding as we all work through this difficult time.


Please stay safe and healthy,
 
Andrew Nogasky
Chair, Snow College Theatre Department

MAJORING IN THEATRE AT SNOW

Pride and Prejudice Image

Theatre is the art and craft of play production. It includes the study of dramatic literature and theory, theatre history, acting, set design, lighting design, costume design and film. In addition to the scholarly exploration of these subjects, the Snow College theatre program emphasizes the practical application of knowledge gained and skills learned through annual performances before live audiences.

Emphasizing in theatre at Snow means:

  • Practical Application. Move your learning beyond the classroom and participate in the hands-on application of skills, methods, and techniques required by the different areas of theatre.
  • Collaborative Artistry. Develop the ability to collaborate in a group: assist fellow artists toward a single creative goal, clearly communicating while understanding responsibilities in theatre.
  • Theoretical Understanding. Ply theoretical concepts fundamental to the theatrical arts used in performance, design and/or technical theatre, informing creativity and expression with structure.
  • Historical Foundation. Recognize the historical developments of dramatic literature, theatrical tradition, and the discrete periods, styles, and genres that comprise them.
  • Reflective Criticism. Engage in the creative process through critique, thoughtful analysis, interpretation, and a refinement of knowledge and self-expression.
  • Cultural Appreciation. Understand the importance of drama as an art form through its impact on society, its diversity of perspectives and/or contribute to the cultural life of the campus.
