Pillars of our Artistic Community
The link between our professional theater alums and current students is a strong, vibrant one. Our alums look out for up-and-coming artists and offer mentorship ranging from conversation to internships and collaborations.
For example, nationally known director Dawn Monique Williams '11G welcomed MFA directing student Kyle Boatwright to Oregon Shakespeare Festival this summer for a shadowing opportunity that ended up being truly inspirational.

Build the Future of Theater
Please consider a gift to our general gift fund so we can continue to offer state-of-the-art theater programming and enrichment that helps our talented, dedicated theater-makers build rewarding careers and creative lives, and that best serves our community of up-and-coming theater artists.
In 2021, when our ability to produce in-person theater was severely curtailed due to the pandemic, we presented Monuments of the Future, "a series of installations that Seven beings rise up from the earth, Seven symbols move across a campus. Seven spokes on a wheel take us through the never-ending cycle of change."
Conceived by Professor Anya Klepikov, the series drew in faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate student collaborators both on the design team and as performers. While the presentation itself was unusual, the piece serves as an excellent example of the way students at all levels have the chance to leave their creative fingerprints on events we offer to the public.
