The Marlboro theater program was about innovation, risk taking, and pushing beyond the boundaries of what has historically been defined as performance.

In the Marlboro College theater program, students were encouraged to find their own unique voice as an artist through engagement with all aspects of theater: writing, directing, acting, designing, production, and history. Students in the theater program often weaved multiple interests and passions with their primary theater focus, such as theater and politics, performance and religion, gender and narratives of identity, and multimedia performance installations. Theater students had opportunities to connect with national and international artists and destinations, engaging in an immersive, interactive theatrical process to examine which stories get told—and why—and how students’ own stories contributed to a larger global community.
