Spingold 50th Anniversary
Spingold Theater Center marks its 50th anniversary this year! Read more about this golden anniversary and what inspired Nate B. and Frances Spingold to support a theater arts center at Brandeis University.
The Department of Theater Arts offers a distinguished array of programming, led by a gifted faculty of scholars, theater artists and practitioners. By uniting creative expression with academic inquiry, we educate our students to become accomplished artists and engaged citizens who are prepared to contribute to a multicultural society.
Our rich history is embedded in the legacy of Leonard Bernstein and the gifted collaborators who invigorated Spingold Theater Center into being. At the forefront is a strong community of students, faculty and staff who work every day toward the common privilege of creating and discussing the world of theater through classes, lectures, workshops and performances.
