By Jeffrey Allen Steiger Arranged by Brian Trahan Additional music by Courtney Kaita.
A University Department: The Musical uses unconventional music and staging to depict a day in the life of individuals who make up a department (faculty, academic administrators, staff) and are often unaware of each others’ work experiences. Stories are drawn from a variety of sources, including research from the Women of Color Academy Project, national ADVANCE studies, and student interviews. Following the show, a facilitated dialogue prompts audience members to share their reactions and perspectives and to suggest practical and positive ideas for changes that can improve departmental climate. The cast includes professional musicians, actors and singers.
