Co-Op Theatre Company
The Co-Op Theatre Company is a resident theater company run by students that produces shows as part of the Theater Program at Drexel University and is sponsored by the Department of Performing Arts.
Students from all over the University have the opportunity to get a hands-on experience running a theater company at a professional level. Student roles include: serving as Assistant to the Producing Director, General Manager, Social Media Director, Production Manager, Assistant Technical Director, and Director of Marketing, along with other key production positions. Many students, especially those in Entertainment and Arts Management, choose to fill one of these administrative positions as their culminating senior project.
This resident company follows a model established by the Late Night Series which is a completely student run theatrical event happening on the Drexel Campus every Thursday evening bringing in outside professional artists to perform alongside students. It expands on the work that the Drexel Theatre Program has been doing with the Mandell Professionals in Residence Project (MPiRP).
