Arts@Wheaton presents an interactive screening of Twilight. Audience members are welcome to yell out their favorite lines and come up with some hot takes for an informal talk back after the movie. We’ll provide the movie snacks, bring a friend and come enjoy some cheesy vampire romance.

This event is for the Wheaton Community only.

Visiting Artist Ted Reichman will discuss his work scoring films, including his most recent work for the critically lauded documentary “Missing In Brooks County,” hailed as “one of the most nuanced and disturbing…films about the immigration crisis.” by the Boston Globe.

Join the event via Zoom here.

A curated selection of student work from Production I, Introduction to Animation and Production II will be showcased in this end-of-semester screening.

Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the X Series. Explore the process of building this initiative, which was conceived by the Department of Theatre and Dance in response to the challenges of our times. Student participants will be joined by members of the production team to provide an insider’s view into the making of this exciting virtual project. Via Zoom, registration required.

The X Series (xperimental/xperiential/xpression) celebrates Wheaton’s creativity in a multidisciplinary virtual event composed of ‘acts’ created by our community. Spanning dance, song, and film to visual art and theatrical performance, each project responds to the prompt: 2020 and Beyond: Our Reflections. Our Responses. Over the course of this two-night live premiere, we gather to share our creative processes and to present the culmination of that work. Via Zoom, registration required.

Calling all creatives, from every corner of the Wheaton College Community! The Theatre & Dance program spring 2021 mainstage production is entitled: The Wheaton X Series, and the subject of this theatrical experience is you and your responses to the events of our time.

The Wheaton X Series (xperimental/xperiential/xpression) is a multi disciplinary, community wide live virtual event spanning two nights of programming, comprised of ‘acts’. The stories reflected through the performance pieces (dance, song, word, music, and film) will be created in response to the prompt:

2020 and Beyond: Our Reflections. Our Responses.

We are inviting all Wheaton voices (students, alumnae/i, staff and faculty) to respond to the prompt through any form of creative expression.

All performances will be recorded, and edited into a two-evening event premiering April 8 & 9, 2021 celebrating the great talent and passion of our community. The premiere will be followed by a ‘Behind the Scenes’ event with the creative team on April 15.

Even if you do not wish to perform, you will have the opportunity to contribute work that may be performed by others (especially original music that can be used for dance performances, or other means of artistic expression.)
