Undergraduate Theatre at GSU

University Theatre is the Communication department production arm for the Theatre area. Faculty and guest directors develop new plays, employ nontraditional production methods and explore emerging scenographic design possibilities in this theatrical venue. Students work with faculty to develop original projects that focus on the changing nature of contemporary theatre practice.
The GSU Players is the oldest university student-produced theater group in Atlanta. Each academic year, the Georgia State University Players produce two mainstage plays. There are many opportunities for beginning and experienced Georgia State students to become involved,, from the artistic and technical aspects of theater to its business and publicity concerns.
Alpha Psi Omega is a national theater honorary fraternity. The Gamma Nu chapter on the Georgia State campus recognizes outstanding contributions to theater production by Georgia State Students. Meetings, productions, and special activities occur year-round.
This group was founded by Daphne Wright, Hanifa Luwenba, and Piper Howse in February 1997, after the successful production of "Unwelcomed Voices: Scenes and Monologues by African American Female Playwrights from 1916-1996" in the Fall of 1996.
The production was produced by University Theatre and directed by Dr. Shirlene Holmes, the faculty advisor for the Black Student Theatre Ensemble.
The Black Student Theatre Ensemble is a chartered organization at Georgia State University. Our mission and purpose is to focus on theatre that highlights the African American experience.
