Biographical Sketch

The Theatre program at Texas Tech began in 1925, as part of the Speech Division. The first official production was The Youngest performed May 4, 1928, in the school gym. Over the years the program has grown and expanded. In 1964 the University Theatre was built and in 1986 the addition of the laboratory theatre gave Tech its present Theatre facilities. In the Summer of 1967 the Theatre expanded its regular season to include a yearly Summer Repertory Theatre. Currently the students who participate in the Rep Theatre can get class credit, then follow the Theatre to Angel Fire, NM for paid theatre experience. It is now part of the Department of Theatre and Dance.
