Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre "Voodoo"

Our department serves students from across the college. Each year we have a vibrant group of majors in Theatre, interdisciplinary majors in Theatre/Literature and Theatre/Dance, and ad hoc interdisciplinary majors in subjects such as Theatre/Classics and Theatre/Anthropology.
