F.A.S.T. is an experimental venue that explores the “process” through which theatre is created.

The program is part of the Department’s initiative to foster a performance culture at Montclair State that embraces multiple modes of creativity. Students write original work, explore innovative performance techniques, and experiment with new dramatic material. The possibilities for theatrical expression are almost limitless.

F.A.S.T. is advised by Professor Michael Allen, curated by student Artistic Directors Erin Gaydos and Melody Appel, and supported by student Technician Christian Confalone.

Students who have ideas about projects for F.A.S.T. should submit a proposal to Melody Appel and Erin Gaydos.
