Theatre and Dance

Welcome to the Department of Theatre and Dance

WIU Theatre and Dance faculty and students earned numerous honors at the Region III Kennedy Center College Theatre Festival in Milwaukee. As part of the festival, the cast from the Fall 2015 production of SHE KILLS MONSTERS directed by Professor DC Wright, was chosen from 48 productions to represent the state of Illinois. This documentary, by Western Illinois University Department of Broadcasting & Journalism senior Jose A. Gonzalez, shows the behind-the-scenes work that went into the phenomenal production.
