The Student Drama Association is dedicated to the support and promotion of theatre UAF productions as well as providing additional performance opportunities for UAF students from all disciplines. The group provides both moral and limited financial support for performance projects of members (after review and acceptance of project proposals by the general membership). Membership is open to all UAF students upon payment of dues. The association also receives financial support from the ASUAF. Other activities include occasional “Open Stages”, “Alternate works”, etc. Still defining their role at UAF, they ask that you get involved and help find/create their place in the world.
We currently meet during the semester on Thursdays from 5:00-6:00pm in THR 101 ("The Green Room", located down the stairs to the left of the Great Hall on UAF's Main Campus). Please join us!
