Please note! Due to COVID-19, in person activities are being restricted. For more information about the general WPI response, please go to the main WPI website. For inquiries on how this may affect theatre work, please email gr-dtoffice@wpi.edu.

We represent the academic theatre programs at WPI through the Department of Humanities and Arts Division of Drama/Theatre.

Among our most important activities are providing courses in dramatic literature and technology, many with the listing under EN. Additionally, we advise projects including the MQP for Drama/Theatre majors, the "HQP" [aka as the Humanities and Arts Inquiry Seminar or Practicum], Independent Studies Projects for 1/6th credit or 1/3rd credit, usually listed as TH, in which an undergraduate may do specific work on performances in the Little Theatre, and occasionally an IQP during E term, on campus or off. Each credit opportunity is taught or advised by a faculty member who is part of the Department of Humanities and Arts, Division of Drama/Theatre.

Drama/Theatre facilitates the academic theatre productions in the Little Theatre, the WPI Drama/Theatre dedicated theatre space. In the Little Theatre most productions include an option for undergraduates to enroll in the 1/6th credit mentioned previously. Drama/Theatre also maintains the other dedicated theatre support spaces, usually shared with MASQUE, WPI's undergraduate student theatre organization, including the Alden Hall Green Room, and the Scenic Design Studio and props and costumes storage in the sub-basement of Alden Hall.

Our staff holds office hours in our D/T office, SL017. Hours are posted on the office door and the staff section of this website should you need more information about any of this. In addition, you may email gr-dtoffice@wpi.edu with any questions. Thank you for visiting the in progress D/T site. We expect to have our plays produced list and our listing of all our New Voices plays back up soon.
