Spectrum Theatre Company
Spectrum Theatre Company is a board of theatre artists dedicated to empowering the greater Northwestern community by raising awareness, inspiring dialogue, and affecting change through theatrical experiences based in relevant social and political issues.
Spectrum is StuCo's newest and youngest theatre board. Founded in 2005, Spectrum aims to inspire thought and dialogue both on campus and within the larger community. Spectrum is dedicated to recognizing the spectrum of beliefs, opinions, colors, creeds, and lifestyles of all people by producing thought provoking and challenging theater. We seek to collaborate with and empower the Northwestern community through theatre. Our seasons consist of scripted plays, devised work, and public happenings centered around a relevant politically and social conscious issue.
