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.

This video features Maren Flessen, who is pursuing a degree in Theatre with a minor in International Affairs at Northeastern University. Through this combination, she has been able to explore her various interests. As part of her undergraduate student experience, Maren is part of a student-run non-profit organization, The Reground Theatre Collective, as the Assistant Production Manager. This group brings together Theatre students from across Boston-based institutions to produce student-driven work. Check out her story below.
