Play becomes a community effort

Sharon Andrews and her colleagues would like to make the University Theatre the community’s theatre. Andrews, an associate professor of theatre, is directing the University Theatre’s current production of “The Grapes of Wrath” on the Mainstage Theatre.

The play has the usual large cast of undergraduates, but Andrews has sought to make it more of a community play, reaching out to faculty and staff and graduate students, and is using the play as a springboard to partner with other academic departments on campus and a local high school.
