For students interested in writing, directing or
producing their own work, Salve Regina's theatre club StageFright is the place
to do it all. The student-run club offers workshops and classes on specialties
like stage combat or Viewpoints and plans field trips to professional and
university theatres in the area.
StageFright produces at least one show per year in the
70-seat black-box theatre on campus. Past shows have included "Lend Me a
Tenor,"; "The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)" and "The Interview."
Each year students tailor the productions to the interests of the club
membership and complement what is happening on the main stage.
