Office: William A. Robinson Theater
I am the director of Theatre at Thiel. I teach all of the classes and direct all of the productions. I also teach an occasional communication course.
I got my start in theatre with the Duquesne University Red Masquers, and later earned a Master's Degree in Theatre at the University of Pittsburgh and a PH.D. at Bowling Green State University.
I am also active with the Greenville Community Theatre.
The Thiel Player organization is one of the oldest, largest, and most active groups on campus. We perform two major productions each academic year, as well as a number of smaller shows.
In addition to our productions, we offer a number of theatre classes in such areas as acting, directing, design, and theatre history. Taken together, these classes can result in a Theatre minor, or they can contribute to the completion of a Performing Arts minor.
All Thiel students are eligible to audition for productions and classes. Unlike many schools, Thiel does not require students to be theatre specialists in order to become involved.
Finally, students who participate in productions can accrue points to earn membership in Alph Psi Omega, the national honorary fraternity.
