Theater at Bryn Mawr College


Academic courses
and productions sponsored by The Theater Program of Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges provide opportunities to participate in performance and technical aspects of theater, as do Greasepaint Productions, Bi-Co Original Works, and other student-run groups. Goodhart Theater is the main performance space; other facilities at Bryn Mawr and Haverford are available for smaller theatrical productions.

Bryn Mawr College was proud to re-open Goodhart Hall in the Fall of 2009 after an ambitious $19 million dollar renovation project was completed.  The newly updated facilities now are used for many functions including performances by drama groups, music concerts and social events, as well as providing a home to the main-stage production each semester.

360°: Shakespeare in Global and Local Landscapes

BMC 360 Logo

 

This semester, two classes in the Theater Program create a "course cluster" in Bryn Mawr College's unique 360° Program.

Advanced Performance Ensemble taught by Professor and Theater Program Director Mark Lord and Acting Across Cultures taught by Assistant Professor Catharine Slusar will use the text of King Lear to "approach Shakespeare as both a way of responding creatively to the contemporary world and as a way to create community and a context for learning."

The semester-long, interdisciplinary experience takes our students into Philadelphia once a week to work (and play!) with a group of eighth-grade students at the E.M Stanton School, and on a international trip to Iceland to explore the theme of the "perturbed natural world" as it relates to Shakespeare's text. To read more about this adventure, visit the Shakespeare in Global and Local Landscapes blog.
