5-O’clock Shadow

The department makes the studio theatre available for student-produced productions as schedule permits. These productions are very low budget and very low tech, and are granted to students on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may produce virtually any kind of show they like as long as they meet the following criteria:


1) the show lasts no more than 90 minutes maximum;

2) the student producers assume all responsibility for auditioning, rehearsing, technical and costuming needs, and advertisement;

3) auditions are open to all students when appropriate but may not utilize individuals not registered as current WOU students; and

4) the studio theatre is kept clean and organized, and all items used are struck after each rehearsal and performance so that classes may meet there during the day.


Typically these productions will begin at 5:00 and end no later than 6:30. The number of performances is dependent on the availability of the studio each term. Watch for posters that give the available dates each term, and the deadline for application. While approval is granted strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, no student may produce a show two terms in a row unless there are fewer applicants than slots available.


(NOTE: two or more students may produce work on the same night, as long as the entire evening lasts no more than 90 minutes.)
