BYU Women’s Services & Resources is getting ready to hold its annual Be You 10 Day Challenge from September 21st through the 29th. Be You is a campaign designed to reshape the ideas and attitudes about self-worth from those promoted in today’s popular culture. The mission of Women’s Services & Resources and the Be You Campaign is to empower women and men to create a life of confidence and self-acceptance. Every day of Be You there is a theme and a small coordinating challenge to get students involved.
We are especially excited about our keynote lecture given by John Bytheway on September 20th from 7-8PM in the WSC Ballroom. John Bytheway will speak on how to “Be Fearless” – one of our 10-day challenge topics. Along with our keynote speaker, we will have fun events such as a polaroid giveaway on the 21st for those using the #BYUBeYou and an ice cream celebration with the Penguin Brothers Ice-Cream on the 29th.

I am a senior in the Commercial Music program looking for experienced writers, directors and producers to collaborate with in creating a symphonic rock musical.
Working title: Dear Mr. Sanders. A story of inner struggle, love, and redemption, it will have the social/cultural commentary and significance of classic rock operas like Tommy and The Wall while capturing the class and grandeur of classic musicals like Phantom of The Opera. Primary influences: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Frank Wildhorn, The Who, The Moody Blues
Academic goals of the production will be fulfilling capstone requirements. End goals are BYU stage production, and beyond. I would love to see this production put on in public venues.
If you have any questions or are interested in being involved with this project, please contact me by email or text.
Study in the birthplace of modern theater. The Moscow Art Theatre Semester immerses actors in the Stanislavski training method in the very theater where he developed his approach. Daily movement and acting classes are complemented with design, voice, Russian language, and Russian theater history. In addition to a conservatory-based training regimen – six days a week taught by masters at one of the world’s most renowned theater companies – you will experience the rich theatrical culture that permeates Moscow by attending 40 performances of theater, opera, ballet, and music throughout the semester as well as enjoying frequent museum visits and a trip to St. Petersburg. NTI has partnered with the Moscow Art Theatre School for nearly 25 years in one of the longest continual cultural exchanges between the U.S. and Russia.
Connecticut College is the school of record for the National Theater Institute. 20 credit hours or 5 course credits are awarded to undergraduates who successfully complete the Moscow Art Theatre Semester. Final grades are reported to Connecticut College where they are recorded by official transcript and forwarded to the student’s college or university registrar upon request. Connecticut College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

RISK. FAIL. RISK AGAIN. NTI is a laboratory where you gain tangible tools while creating new work. From 7:30am to 10pm, seven days a week, you work with master teachers and create theater. This 14-week program trains you to function as a contributing member of an ensemble, invites you to find out what excites you about the art of theater, and gives you valuable skills to boldly apply that excitement and knowledge to your work.
Two weeks studying abroad in London, England, offers exposure to the culture, historical beauty, and theatrical richness of London. As an ensemble, you train daily in Lecoq techniques, mask work, improvisation, and clowning with the internationally renowned theater company Complicite. Additionally, you participate in NTI’s singular series of tours, workshops, and master classes with the U.K’s foremost theater artists.
Weekly theater labs challenge you to put what you’re learning in class on its feet. When given just 15 hours to stage a scene, you learn to trust your creative instincts. Under the mentorship of a professional director, you gain practical experience with a wealth of classical and contemporary texts.
Playwrights Week is dedicated to the staging of original one-act plays written, directed, designed, performed, and produced by your ensemble. This collaborative week supports and amplifies the voices of the next generation of American theater writers under the mentorship of several professional playwrights.
Theater trips to New York City as well as to prominent regional theaters such as Yale Repertory Theatre and the A.R.T. are frequently taken. These excursions often feature exclusive opportunities to learn more about the artistic process with cast and creative teams.
During Company Project, your ensemble collaboratively produces a full-length work guided by a prompt. You have two weeks to devise a new piece of theater unique to your ensemble. Through public performances, you showcase what you have learned and what has inspired you throughout the semester.
