Doug Ratelle Performance Anxiety workshops
Dr. Doug Ratelle will be holding Performance Anxiety workshops in the month of October.

This is ONLY open to BFA Actors and BFA MDT students.

The Importance of Being Earnest
The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde and directed by Rodger Sorensen,  will take place October 28-November 12 in the Pardoe Theatre. You’ll laugh out loud when this comic masterpiece untangles the double lives of two well-to-do society-gentlemen, both of whom have assumed the same alias in order to escape the doldrums of everyday life. Mistaken identities, a mysterious friend named Bunbury, and a misplaced handbag lead to unexpected turns (and happy endings!) in Oscar Wilde’s time-honored tour de force of cleverness and charm.
