Doctoral Theatre Students Association
|pearls of wisdom
The Doctoral Theatre Students Association (DTSA) is comprised of all the students enrolled in the Ph.D. Program in Theatre at the Graduate Center. The DTSA fosters a sense of community and organizes events that are of benefit to the entire student population. Each Spring the DTSA elects ten officers to run the organization: President, First Vice President, Second Vice President (in charge of the Booth Award), Secretary, and Treasurer. The President and First Vice President, in addition to their other responsibilities, represent students on the Executive Committee. Other students are elected to serve as student representatives for the Admissions & Awards and Curriculum & Membership Committees. Students are also elected to The Graduate Council, the Doctoral Students Council and as Coordinator for Professionalization-Related Events. There are many DTSA activities that students can become involved with throughout the academic year:
The Edwin Booth Award. For the past twenty six years the DTSA's major activity has been sponsoring the Edwin Booth Award, an honor bestowed each year to an individual or organization who has made a substantial contribution to American theatre and performance via their activities in New York. Recent honorees include P.S. 122, Dixon Place, Hal Prince, and The Wooster Group.
The Greenroom. This semi-annual newsletter, compiled and edited by the vice president of the Doctoral Theatre Students Association, highlights the ongoing activities and accomplishments of students and faculty. Each issue includes a schedule of upcoming DTSA events; news submitted by professors and students, such as publications, conference activity, creative endeavors, teaching, and research interests; and other items of interest. It is published in November and May.
Pearls of Wisdom. Current students and Alumni would like to pass along their own "pearls" regarding visiting archives.
