Peek behind the curtain with Auburn University Theatre's 2019-2020 season: Bodies of Work

Artwork for Theatre Season brochureThe Department of Theatre in the College of Liberal Arts invite you to celebrate the hard work of all students in theatre with their 106th season, Bodies of Work. This year they will highlight the roles taken on and offstage by those students who present audiences with awe-inspiring stories at the Telfair Peet Theatre. 

“Our theme for this season places our focus squarely on the work of our students,” said Chase Bringardner, department chair, “while Auburn University Theatre remains committed to and focuses on our students’ work each and every day, we see this season as an opportunity to pull back the curtain and emphasize their incredible effort.”

Through a collaboration with Lauren Woods, an assistant professor with the Department of Art and Art History at Auburn, the creative team at the Theatre explored ideas around both corporeal and metaphorical bodies, and how these are woven into the themes and stories of each performance during the season. Together they crafted Bodies of Work, to showcase the bodies at work in the theatre. You can see Lauren’s work of figurative drawing featured throughout the brochure.
