All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
You’ve probably heard this quote from Shakespeare’s As You Like It at least a thousand times.
For many students and faculty at Loyola, their world really is a stage.
Housed in the DeChiaro College Center, the heart of the theatre department is McManus Theatre. Students from any major or minor are more than welcome to participate in any show, but the theatre majors and minors really drive the department. They serve as student directors, stage managers, stage crew, work studies, and, of course, as actors. And while faculty and staff have participated in the past, in recent years, the casts have been solely comprised of students.
