Student Enrichment Fund
Studying near one of the global capitals of the theatre arts and not exploring its vast treasures is a missed opportunity. Yet because many of our students work long hours to pay the costs of their education, they often it impossible to see shows in the City. These funds are earmarked to subsidize tickets for undergraduate students to join faculty members at shows, providing them an opportunity to see world class theatre and engage in a critical discussion about the work. Help us enrich the undergraduate experience in Theatre Arts at Stony Brook by donating here!

Theatre Arts Fund for Excellence
The Department of Theatre Arts strives for excellence in all areas of study and production. As institutions of higher learning face reductions in funding, there are fewer resources available to maintain the tools of education. The Department, for instance, has always depended on the box office to pay for the cost of productions - from royalties and scripts to sets and programs. Your donation to this unrestricted fund will help us take the steps necessary to insure the quality of training we can give our students.
Classes begin August 27th
Auditions for fall shows: Sept. 1 and 2nd
Welcome meeting: September 7th, campus lifetime
