Guest Artists Archives

Judge Us By The Company We Keep ...

One very significant component that leads to the high quality of the artistic endeavors of the Theatre Department at Willamette is the contribution made by guest artists. Faculty, staff, and students are unanimous in their agreement that the presence of the guest artists, as both teachers and fellow artists makes a vital and very special difference in program. This difference is reflected in what our students learn, create, and achieve in the classroom, in the rehearsal room, and on the stage. It is also what makes the theatre experience unique at an intimate, demanding liberal arts school like Willamette, since students gain performance and training excellence with practicing professionals in a simultaneously broad and committed liberal arts context.
