Shouting from the Prairie: A 100th Anniversary Documentary

The timing is right for a comprehensive examination of this amazing journey. So, to honor our historical rite of passage we intend to create a video documentary examining the department’s origins and its century-long influence on theatre, film, and television. Thank you to all who donated to our GOLDrush campaign to make this possible! We appreciate your support!
