About the Program

The Roberts Wesleyan College student theatre program and consequent minor was rebooted in Fall 2014 with the inaugural production “Screwtape,” and is managed by artists-in-residence Shawnda Urie (who is also a local actor) and Leah Stacy (who is also a local theatre critic). The program is housed within the Music Department under Chair, Daniel Barta. In Spring 2015, the theatre program began a partnership with the Geneva School District to bring one production per year to the students, since performing arts-related bussing funds are not available for the district. A portion of all ticket sales goes toward funding educational opportunities for income-inhibited students throughout the greater Rochester region.
