    • Each year, the School of Drama produces four BFA mainstage productions, two in the fall semester and two in the spring semester. These productions are presented in the School of Drama Theater at 151 Bank Street and offer our BFA actors an opportunity to work with professional directors, designers, and stage managers. Notable past productions include Monstrosity by Lucy Thurber, She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen, The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare, and Language of Angels by Naomi Iizuka.
