Student Theatre Groups
The School of Theatre Arts and Dance supports a wide variety of student organizations. These student-run groups provide numerous opportunities to be involved with theatre and dance beyond UNC's mainstage productions and theatre classes.
List of Organizations
Alpha Psi Omega is the National Theatre Honor Society that produces the end of the year awards show and one main stage show in Norton Theatre each year.
Barely Shakespeare produces staged readings of Shakespeare’s plays.
Chaos is the on-campus improv troupe that produces long and short form improv as well as joint shows with Hello, My Name Is…
DTSA (Design and Technology Student Association) is a social organization for students who are either Design and Technology majors or a UNC student with an interest in the backstage part of theatre. Events range from professional classes and workshops to social events.

Great things are happening in Theatre at UNC as we continue to develop new opportunities for our students to learn and practice their craft. The School of Theatre Arts and Dance inaugurated our annual Studio Season in the Fall 2017 semester, designed to increase available resources for student production groups and to nurture strategic planning toward projects that will expand audiences and compliment the main stage shows. We have invested funds to negotiate and book off-campus production venues in Greeley for 3-4 pre-determined production slots each academic year. One or more productions each season will be determined a Diversity/Inclusion Featured Production, recognizing a project that best supports and advances our mission to enhance our diverse and inclusive school climate, and will be produced in the Hensel-Phelps Theatre in the Union Colony Civic Center in downtown Greeley.
