Sally B. Weinstock Guest Artist Endowment for the Theatre Department and the URT/A contract management program

A generous endowment created by Sally B. Weinstock (class of 1956) has enabled the Department of Theatre to supplement the program curriculum by bringing in outstanding artists and professionals from various theatre disciplines. Each year the faculty and staff meet to propose artists who will bring added breath and depth to our program.

Guest artists work with UVM students to share their knowledge in master classes and workshops. Recent guest artists have included New York casting directors, Merri Sugarman (Tara Rubin Casting), New York theatre press representative Chris Boneau (Boneau/Bryan-Brown) Robert Birch, master upholsterer and furniture restorer (Pompanoosuc Mills), and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Paula Vogel.

The Department of Theatre has also collaborated with other departments and programs in the college to host other guests, including spoken word artist Beau Sia, performance artist Adelina Anthony, and playwright Oliver Mayer.
