Associate Professor and Associate Head Tom Mitchell is spearheading efforts to mark 50 years of Illinois Theatre. Alumni and other friends of Illinois Theatre are invited to a weekend celebration of our past, present, and future. Highlighting our five decades of innovative teaching and production, as well as our efforts to diversify U.S. stages, we will include a wide variety of events. On Saturday we will hold a welcome reception and special performance of Twelfth Night. On Sunday there will be Pecha Kucha-style autobiographies about how alumni have used their Illinois Theatre degrees, tours, reception, and an evening cabaret from current students. Then join us for alumni-led classes and workshops and a late afternoon mini-performance featuring alumni work on Monday. An exhibit of alumni design, tech, and management projects will be open throughout the event. If you are interested in participating as a speaker, teacher, exhibitor, or in other ways, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
