Actors on stage of play

CHANGE (/chānj/ noun, verb)

Scene from The Shadow BoxThe work of theatre is to entertain and exhilarate, but also to educate, and the best plays have at their heart important questions about the nature and purpose of human existence. These may be understood as opportunities to consider change, personal or social.

Theatre inspires empathy, self-examination, and compassion in the audience and in the artist. At Wofford, we believe the study of theatre will open your eyes, mind, and heart, so that your work will have the same impact on your audiences.

"You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of." ~ Eric Roth

"Change is the end result of all true learning." ~ Leo Buscaglia

"Art is a personal act of courage, something that one human does that creates change in another." ~ Seth Godin

"Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, and to remain vigilant and face the challenge of change." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King
