The Department of Communication Arts, the largest department in the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, provides a forum through which students can develop life skills such as confidence in oral and written presentations, communication skills, and critical analysis and problem solving skills. Students in the Department represent a broad spectrum of majors, interests, and career possibilities in Communication Arts, Communication Studies, Multimedia Film & Production, Multimedia Journalism, Public Relations, and Theatre.  They work together and with faculty on research projects, state-of-the-art productions, events, online news outlets, and broadcasts.

CLASS_TheatreWebSlidesINSTAGRAM-01The Pillowman –
Opens September 30

by Martin McDonagh

Directed by Nicholas Newell

“Energizing…a blindingly bright black comedy…[what makes] the unsettling and exhilarating new play from Mr. McDonagh…so gripping as theater is how narrative art becomes the play’s and the character’s very life blood.” —NY Times.
Sept. 30—Oct. 7 , 2015                    Center for Art & Theatre

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, Georgia Southern’s Theatre & Performance production of THE PILLOWMAN centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.

Student and youth tickets are $6. Faculty, staff and community tickets are $12. All seating is general admission. Call the Box Office at 912-478-5379 to make reservations. Or go to Marketplace – Theatre & Performance to purchase tickets online.
