College of St. Scholastica

When 2013 College of St. Scholastica grad Shane May was tapped to direct a play for his alma mater, he only knew a few things: it had to be Greek or Roman in origin, he wanted a tragedy, and he still wasn't sure what to make of the whole "Greek chorus" thing.

Note: in celebration of National College Radio Day on KUMD,  we're pleased to welcome Northland Morning Assistant Producer Abrielle Vizenor as our interviewer for Radio Theatre this week.

In theater, the "house" is either the audience ("how does the house look? Pretty full?") or the place where the audience sits ("dim the house lights and cue curtain!").

Apparently, kids  decide as early as second grade whether they like, or  think they are good at,  math and science. STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects could be difficult for lots of teenagers, and aren't always popular.  But today, our reporter Josie Fan takes you to a program where some middle school students are having  fun with numbers and equations.

Director Kelly Mullen takes us behind the scenes of Boy Gets Girl, the next production of the St. Scholastica Theater Department.

It's a show chosen to coincide with Sexual Assault Awareness Month, but the young actors discovered, to their surprise, that when they talked about the show to their family and friends, everyone had a story - to one degree or another - related to stalking or sexual violence.

We take a look at the theatre curriculum at the College of St. Scholastica, and in the process, learn about the difference between drama and theatre (it may very well be the roots of the ancient argument, "Which was better: the book or the movie?") and what it takes to be a game show host.

What do theater folks do on summer vacation?  See shows and read scripts or avoid anything theatrical altogether?  Merry Renn Vaughan says a little of both.  She's the head of the theater program at the College of St. Scholastica and she talks about the fun of a new crop of theater students each fall.

St. Scholastica Theatre will kick of its season in November with  the musical "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown."
