Alyse Clinton in the Department of Theatre's Production of How I Learned To Drive

The Department of Theatre at Northeastern University is multifaceted and combines performance, design, story-telling, theory, history, and innovation into one package to produce a distinctive program – all while still focusing on the human connections and the human experiences that bring theatre to life. A new CAMD-made video series, Theatre Stories, showcases what it’s like to be a student in Northeastern’s Department of Theatre – from why students are fascinated by the field to which groups and organizations they are founding and joining to enhance their growth.

We are getting to a point where theatre is becoming something for everyone, and that’s what I’m really excited about.

This video features Alyse Clinton, a fourth year student in the College of Media, Arts and Design. Alyse is interested in Theatre Accessibility and the intersection between Theatre and the Deaf Community, which is exactly the reason why she is pursuing a unique double major of American Sign Language (ASL) and Theatre, here at Northeastern University.

Check out her story below.
