The Lipscomb Theatre 2010-11 season:
Join us for another wonderful theater season at Lipscomb University, appropriately named “An Era Exploding”. With the success of the university's first professional production of John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt this summer, rapid department growth to 50 majors and minors, the hiring of a new full-time design faculty member, renovations taking place in the University Theatre, and newly formed connections with the professional theater scene in Nashville including the new artists-in-reisdence The Blackbird Theater, there are many great things happening in the Lipscomb Theatre Department.
The Glass Menagerie
The Lipscomb University Department of Theatre presented Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie Sept. 24-26 and Oct. 1-3 in Lipscomb’s Shamblin Theatre.
The Glass Menagerie was directed by Beki Baker, education director at the Nashville Shakespeare Festival and an adjunct professor with Lipscomb’s theatre department. Baker most recently served as assistant director for the current production of Love’s Labor’s Lost for Shakespeare in the Park and portrayed Sister James in the Lipscomb production of Doubt: A Parable this past June.
