Behind the Scenes

There are a number of special partnerships and initiatives in the School of Theatre. Learn more about them, along with our incredible venues and facilities, here!

  • FRINGE FESTIVAL • New work, shown in a spare and minimal production — the Fringe offerings can be plays, operas, or other work.  They also can be shown in a variety of venues.
  • GRADUATE COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS • These projects emerge out of the artistic collaboration of the teams in the Graduate Collaborative Forum course.  They are developed in the Fall class and then performed in each quarter of the Spring semester
  • NEXT STAGE WORKSHOP • An “on-its-feet” workshop that may focus on different areas of the writing or specific parts of a project in process of development.  Not necessarily a full production.
  • SPRINGBOARD • Directed music stand/table readings of the play with a short rehearsal period.
  • BOSTON PLAYWRIGHTS’ THEATRE (BPT) • SOT partners with BPT at 949 Commonwealth Ave to produce and perform the plays written by the graduate MFA playwrights at BU CAS.  The plays are performed at the BPT theatre space, have different rehearsal and production schedules, and they are eligible for AEA Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) points. BPT rehearsal hours: Tuesday-Friday 7:00pm-11:00pm, Saturday and Sunday (5 hours each day, specific time TBD)
  • OPERA INSTITUTE • We often partner with the School of Music’s Opera Institute to design, stage-manage, build, and/or production-manage the opera productions. Learn more at bu.edu/opera.
  • WHEELOCK FAMILY THEATRE (WFT) • SOT students may have the opportunity to work on WFT productions as designers and actors.
