Sock & Buskin produces a number of major productions each year and plans the schedule for the next year. Students are more numerous than faculty on the board and so have a greater vote when the final season is decided – a situation unmatched at any other university. Our philosophy: if the faculty are working productively with students in classes, we should respect them enough to design a vital and invigorating season. And we do! And they do!
Each year, the Sock & Buskin board chooses a season consisting of four mainstage theatrical shows and one mainstage dance performance to be produced during the following academic year. The board also chooses a fifth show, the “senior slot.” Senior slot, determined by faculty who select from proposals submitted by junior concentrators, is a mainstage show running for one week and is open to juniors who wish to direct or write a full production of their choosing in their senior year.
