SDSU Theatre began as part of the English Department. A powerhouse faculty member, Sybil Eliza Jones, taught all the theatre courses and directed all the productions. Student theatre group Skull & Dagger was established early on and continues to produce to this day.
Dramaturgy at SDSU
Dramaturgs work on every production at SDSU. A dramaturg helps the company of actors, directors, designers, and stage managers to know more about the play. Dramaturgs provide context and information on the playwright, the characters, the issues raised by the play, the original context in which it was written, and the way the play might be understood today. You can find information on our productions by clicking on the link to the current semester and selecting the title of the play or musical.
