In its first three years, Calliope has put up productions of Hamlet, Titus Andronicus, and Cyrano de Bergerac, to sold-out houses and enthusiastic reviews. The scene festivals have featured Shakespeare-inspired raps and other creative acts.
The Calliope officers would like to acknowledge Profs. David Green and Kyna Hamill, for their invaluable theatrical and institutional guidance; and to thank the Distinguished Teaching Professorship for that program’s financial support.
