University Honors College - The Honorable mention

TH 235 2nd 7 week course Open Seats Fall 2018 (Get Honors Experience Credit!)

Posted by Tim on September 25, 2018 in Academics, Honors Experiences

The UB Department of Theatre and Dance is still seeking deck(stage)/fly crew for their production of “Pippin” this October.  This is a 2-credit opportunity within the 2nd 7-week course TH235, so the add/drop date is not until next month.  It also counts for Honors Experience credit, and it is a fulfilling way to potentially give your GPA a boost.

The pre/co-requisites are:

TH106 (Intro to Technical Theatre) or significant prior theatrical experience (like high school stage crew or CFA stagehand work)

Attendance is 100% mandatory for this course, so please check your schedules meticulously to make sure you are available for all calls for this show before proceeding. However, there may be some exceptions on a case-by-case basis for minor scheduling conflicts, so please reach out if you think you may still qualify.

There are 2 “on school time” performances, but you will receive as many excusal letters as needed for those two mornings, which are the same types of letters the athletes use for away games. The required dates and times are listed at the bottom of this message.  

Please let me know if you have any questions about registration, scheduling, responsibilities, or anything else you may think of.  If you are interested, please email me at with your name, major, and a brief description of any prior theatre experience you have, including whether you’ve taken TH106.
