Dramashop is one of the oldest theater groups at MIT. It is also the only co-curricular group, meaning you can get credit for participating in its shows! This also means Dramashop gets a lot of help and support from the theater arts faculty.
Dramashop operates out of an office in the basement of Kresge Auditorium, and most of its shows are performed either in Kresge Little Theater or one of the Rehearsal Rooms (A or B). Dramashop puts on 4 shows a year: a fun, low commitment show in the fall, a huge, technically challenging show over IAP, and a smaller main show in the spring. Towards the end of the year, Dramashop also puts on Playwrights in Performance, which is a series of student-written one act shows that come out of professor Alan Brody's spring playwrighting class. All but the fall show are directed by members of the theater arts faculty.
Dramashop is always looking for students to design and work on sets, lighting, sound, costumes, and video, as well as act! If you're interested in working on a show in any capacity, please email us at [email protected]
