UTS
For the first two shows of their season the Undergraduate Theater Society turned up the comedy! They opened with Debate: An Improvised Comedy which was a long-form improv show that parodied the American presidential debate structure. Talk about timely! 

For their second production of the season, they produced The Complete Work of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] which turned the Bard on his head. Performing all of William Shakespeare's canon in less than two hours provided for a high-energy and hilarious mash-up.

Lecture Series
The School of Drama continued its tradition of presenting lectures on cutting edge conversations about the arts. In its fifth year, this October's lectures series focused on the role of the arts and humanities in the STEM-focused academy. With our largest turn out yet, we were thrilled to hear from Catherine Cole, the new Divisional Dean for the Arts, Jesse Oak Taylor from the Department of English, and Jason Groves from the Department of Germanics.
