Producer Hank Unger ’90 | Wed Lab Guest

Wednesday Lab is the “living room” of the artistic home that is the Department of Drama.

Each Wednesday at 4 p.m. during the academic year, the drama department comes together in a forum that presents a variety of events and guest lectures. Through “Wed Lab,” drama students informally learn about creating theater.

Lab programs may include presentations from directors and designers for both Syracuse Stage and Department of Drama that explore the approach to current productions and provide the opportunity for students to understand and contextualize the productions they see in the complex. Guests often include successful alumni as well as theater artists who are performing or working at Syracuse cultural venues, including Syracuse Stage. Alumni who share their stories include recent graduates who successfully entered the business as well as those who found a different path for their lives.

Lab events have also included material from various classes, workshops, and productions.
