Title

Article "Student-run Theater aims for student audience; involvement"

Description

Explores the intent behind the Quonset Hut Two (QH2), the student run theater, and its effects on campus life. The goals of the theater included creating a more accessible theater environment--tickets were free, encouraging higher student attendance, and students had the opportunity to participate in theater opportunities earlier on in their careers via the platform. Carol Gibson explains the student work as "something new". Controversy over these student run productions with "smoking on stage and the use of foul language" led to letters to Richard Morrill, the president of the university.
