Knox's Repertory Theatre Term (Rep Term), produced every three years by the Department of Theatre, is the only undergraduate theatre program in the United States that embeds academic study of theatre within the experience of forming a repertory company that produces two fully staged productions. Its success depends on intensive collaboration between faculty and students, and it provides the students who participate with an unforgettable 10-week immersion in theatre.

Working with faculty directors and designers, the students -- about half of whom, typically, are theatre majors -- spend an entire term researching, designing, constructing, rehearsing, and performing two full-length plays.

Rep Term is a three-credit course in which all the students serve on multiple crews (such as set construction, props, and publicity) as well as playing roles - on stage or off - in one or both productions. They also learn about dramaturgy, and study and carry out independent research into the plays. Workshops and colloquia provide additional training in areas such as voice, and stage combat, and opportunities to meet with alumni and other professionals.

The plays are performed in nightly rotation over two weekends, including two Saturdays with both matinee and evening performances. Repertory Theatre Term is cooperative, collaborative, and one of the most intense and rewarding theatre experiences a student can have at the undergraduate level.
