Theatre Arts

StageFright has defined my Salve experience. It is so rewarding to be a part of a close-knit group of students committed to creating theater together. It has become my family.

For students interested in writing, directing or producing their own work, our theater club, StageFright, is the place to do it all. Each year, StageFright produces two student-run productions, a playwriting festival, multiple cabarets and weekly theater workshops that focus on different aspects of the art form, such as stage combat or viewpoints.

StageFright also plans field trips to professional and university theaters in the area and encourages students of all majors, no matter what their class schedule, to participate in any way they choose, including directing, performing and designing.

Past shows have included "The Addams Family," "Spring Awakening," "Seussical," "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," "Romeo and Juliet" and "The Last Five Years." Each year students tailor the productions to the interests of the club membership and complement what is happening on the main stage.
