The Senior Program

The Senior Program is the culmination of one’s Hamilton experience in a focused project, carried out under the close supervision of a faculty member. It draws together coursework and creativity, theory and practice. Students in theatre and dance have a variety of options in writing, performance, directing, choreography and design as they pursue the senior project that concludes the Senior Program.

Each theatre student produces a senior project in which he or she not only directs and, where appropriate, acts in or writes a one-act play, but produces a major scholarly paper based on this experience.

Recent projects in theatre include:

  •  directing and performing, Cowboys #2 by Sam Shepard
  • directing, my Golden empty soul
  • staged reading, Lucy
  • directing, Alice Gerstenberg’s Overtones
  • directing, Tatyana
