Theatre Board is the representative student body that has been created to facilitate the process of running the production component of the Hampshire Theatre Program.
The board oversees functionality and the budget of the non-academic theatre program. In addition, Theatre Board functions as a resource to the Hampshire community: for funding, equipment, and general help in any theatre event.
Serving on Theatre Board requires full commitment to the program and the specific position to which one is elected.
The academic component of Hampshire College Theatre is managed by the theatre faculty; therefore, Theatre Board does not have influence over any student's academic standing.
