Department of Theatre

The Department of Theatre at Columbus State University educates students in the collaborative art of theatre and prepares them for professional employment, careers in theatre education, and graduate study. The course of study teaches the craft and artistry of acting, directing, design, technical, and educational theatre.

The professional and energetic faculty encourages students to experiment, explore, and discover in a supportive yet challenging environment. CSU productions serve as a laboratory where students practice classroom theories, test analytical skills, and undertake cooperative endeavors while promoting the creative act of theatre.

Reawakening Rebekah: The Gift of the Clamor Girls

By Deidre Ann deLaughter

Original new work, developed by the author from book to script. Everything Rebekah
Wilkins-Standifer plans for her life has fallen easily into place, including her marriage and
her rapid climb up the corporate ladder in fashion merchandising. Now, in the grip of an
unrelenting depression, Rebekah struggles with even the most mundane of tasks. In the office
of Dr. Myra Devoe, a psychiatrist who still believes in private practice and talk therapy in
addition to the wonders of pharmaceuticals, Rebekah embarks on the journey of reclaiming
her life. Reawakening Rebekah is a story that celebrates triumph over great loss and testifies
to the resilience of the human spirit, revealed not so much in grand acts as in the many small
decisions to get even by learning to live well. Adult themes.

By Moliere

Molière's comic masterpiece brings us Tartuffe, con artist extraordinaire, masquerading as a man
of God. Will Tartuffe's hypocrisy be discovered before Orgon's fortune is lost? Though the
rest of the family goes to hilarious lengths to show Orgon the error of his ways and expel
Tartuffe from their home, the scheming hypocrite always seems to be one step ahead of them.
This famous farce is a cautionary tale told with lightning-quick wit, complete with star-crossed
lovers, a badgering grandmother and a plot that could be ripped from the headlines.
