Grounds for Discussion

The 2017 Grounds for Discussion cast on the Cabell Hall stage.

 

Help incoming first-years consider decisions they will face -- be part of a cast performing Grounds for Discussion

Grounds for Discussion, a student-directed and student-performed theatrical production that's required viewing for all first-years, is held every year during Wahoo Welcome. The eight-member casts perform skits focused on issues such as roommate disagreements, drinking, upholding the honor code, eating disorders, and sexual assault. Follow-up discussions in residence halls with resident assistants are an evening complement to the performances.

We are now casting for the 2020 edition of Grounds for Discussion, and no prior acting experience is required! To audition, please film yourself performing (memorization is not required) one of the monologues and submit the video in the GFD Google form by April 30.
