Theatre

The UW-BC drama department presents two productions a year including dramas, children theatre, and comedies.

All students are encouraged to audition for roles and/or work on the technical aspects of campus productions. No prior experience in theatre is necessary. You can also participate in theatre activities through a credit course or as a volunteer. Terry Wiesner is the UW-BC theatre director.

Dear Theatre Patrons!

It seems almost unbelievable that this University has been going strong for over 40 years. For alumni, such as myself, the rich history of the Fine Arts program offered to area audiences clearly indicate the strong focus of campus staff, students and community in the pursuit of the best possible artistic experiences for all involved.

This dedication to an educated effort of providing classroom, performance and entertainment is something that we strive for everyday. Whether it is in the art room, music room or onstage, the Fine Arts presentations are second to none.

We continue the concept of providing all students with the experience that they may never get in a larger university environment. Because we are small we operate much like a large family. Those students taking a music course may also be in an art or theatre course as well. And the theatre is an area that allowed all of these various artistic forms to come together to create something memorable and long lasting. Many former students come back to participate as performers as well as regular audience members. It is very gratifying to reconnect with all of the history of this fine theatre program.

We ask that you please help to keep this vital theatre tradition going. You will be providing the necessary support that is often so desperately needed for us to continue the tradition another 40 years.

Have a great year and enjoy the show!
Terry Wiesner, UW-BC Drama Director
