    Thank You

    To our Community, Alumni, and Friends

    Since its inception, the department has benefited from the many gifts made by alumni and friends of the program.

    The Theatre and Dance department is thankful for all the contributions the Hamline community has made to continue Hamline's theatrical legacy. It takes a large theatrical community to continually produce plays and productions that make people take notice.

    We would like to thank our alumni and community members for your continual work and donations to the Theatre and Dance department.

    Some alumni have individually created scholarship funds for students, while in other cases, groups of alumni have pooled their resources to create endowed scholarships. This is how the scholarships named for Anne Simley and Dr. William Kimes were created as well as the Holt Endowment Fund, developed by the Holt Family.

    Other alumni have remembered Hamline Theatre in their wills and the gifts have supported projects like the development of our 2000+ volume library.

    Our program also benefits from the time that many of our alumni volunteer to our program.

    Alumni participate in performance review panels, visit classes, and provide important "life and art" information to those about to graduate and advice that allows us to better upgrade and revise our curriculum.

    Annual gifts are pooled and used to underwrite the cost of student attendance at professional conferences, support student research work, bring guest artists to campus to work with students, and to purchase new equipment that allows us to keep training our students for this continually evolving industry.

    The department appreciates all of these gifts and the broad support that our alumni and friends provide for our students.

    Thank you for all of your support,
