The Gallagher Bluedorn and UNI Department of Theatre are offering a first-of-its-kind, week-long opportunity for middle and high school students in the Cedar Valley who have an interest in technical theater. The Science and Engineering in Technical Theater (SETT) Camp will introduce youth to technical theater through lighting, audio engineering, set construction, costuming and more - all while amplifying STEM concepts.
The University of Northern Iowa's theater department will host the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage as part of the College of Humanities’ Arts and Sciences Hearst Lecture Series. Ms. Nottage will deliver a free, public fireside chat at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. on March 8, 2022. Nottage has won two Pulitzer Prizes for Drama for her plays “Ruined” and “Sweat.” Her plays have been produced widely in the United States and throughout the world.
A new partnership between UNI’s Department of Theatre and its Classic Upward Bound program is helping prepare low-income and first-generation Waterloo high school students for college, by using the skills gained through acting and improvising.
