Department Chair, Theatre and Dance
Greetings, Alumni of the Department of Theatre and Dance!
This is an exciting time in our department and I want to share some of the excitement with you.
Our series of student productions continues to grow along with our expanding programs and enrollment. These programs include the department’s acclaimed Theatre and Dance Series presented throughout the year; our student-generated Theatre in the Raw projects, which are presented at noon on Fridays; three evenings of senior BA 410 Projects; and numerous student-directed class projects.
Students perform on campus in our expanded performance facilities, including the state-of-the-art Alexander Kasser Theater, the Montclair State University Dance Theatre and the L. Howard Fox Theatre, which was recently renovated with alumni support.
Off campus, Theatre and Dance students continue to win awards and scholarships through the American College Dance and Theatre Festivals, performing regionally as well as nationally at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
As a Montclair State alumnus and valued member of our University family, you are always welcome on campus. I hope you will visit often and attend not only our departmental productions, but also take advantage of the college’s Arts and Cultural Programming’s eclectic mix of terrific performing arts events, including our popular Peak Performances series.
As always, your generous support of our mission is greatly appreciated. I hope that you will consider – or continue – to help us further our work by giving of your time and talents. Some of you have created scholarships that make it possible for the next generation of actors, dancers, educators, arts managers, designers, directors and choreographers to get the training they need to shine.
I look forward to seeing you back on campus!
All best wishes,
Randy Mugleston, Theatre and Dance Department Chairperson
