Join us for our WEEKLY meetings Wednesdays in the Otteson Theatre Acting Studio from 9-10pm!
Our purpose is to give all students the opportunity to explore every aspect of theatre.
The Carroll Players is the first active student theater organization in Wisconsin, founded in 1896 when professor May Nickell Rankin directed a group of students in a production of Richelieu as part of Commencement weekend activities. The group furthers the artistic, academic and educational concerns of the Theatre & Arts Management program, recognizes outstanding alumni and encourages fellowship and growth among members through social and educational activities.

Recommended for ages 12+

Tennessee Williams' American classic, The Glass Menagerie, explores memory as "truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion."  A frustrated mother, a daughter lost in her imagination, and a son intent on adventure share a small St. Louis apartment, confined in the illusory nature of dreams and the fragility of hope.
