All great theatre programs have a student-run theatre group. Ours is the BTO - the Blazer Theatre Organization.

We all know and love each other within the Department of Theatre, but the Blazer Theatre Organization aims to spread awareness of the performing arts across campus and beyond. The organization seeks to create a fun, safe social environment for theatre students by sponsoring student work, participating in service activities, and coordinating social events for member students.

Students may get involved with the student body of BTO by attending events and public meetings. To become a permanent member, you simply contact the BTO Treasurer to pay your dues of $25. This one-time payment gets you full access to all our events, special invitation and reminders about everything we're doing, and the right to vote in our elections and run for office.
