Student Theater

Student Theater Organizations are created through Campus Life and are student-funded, student-run, and student-programmed. They provide undergraduates with a wide range of opportunities for creating productions, seasons, and other events. The current student theater organizations produce a wide range of work: classics and contemporary plays, musicals, improv comedy, new works, and projects about issues of concern to diverse communities.


Student Theater Organizations

Ad Hoc Productions

Ad Hoc Productions was founded to allow Emory students to produce musical theater, and to provide a forum for education about, as well as enjoyment of, this unique art form. They produce a main stage show every semester as well as occasional smaller projects.
