O&N, the second-oldest student organizations on campus, works in conjunction with the department to advance and promote the arts on campus. The club sponsors a wide variety of events, including special performances, trips and more. Anyone can join the Owl and Nightingale Players! Other student theatre groups include SMuT/Student Musical Theatre, and STDs: Shotz in the Dark, the improvisational club.
As a special interest house, Theatre House sponsors such activities as trips to regional theatres, cast parties, spaghetti dinners, the O & N picnic and ushering for the main stage productions. Residents don't need to be a major, minor, or even have theatre experience - all that is required is a sincere interest in the theatre and the desire to live in one of the most active houses on campus.
