Dramatist Society

The Dramatist Society is a CSU, Sacramento Department of Theatre & Dance theatre support and appreciation club which is open to anyone with a love for theatre.

The purpose of this organization is to represent the Theatre & Dance majors and minors of Sacramento State University and serve as an outlet for the creative energy of students interested in these fields. We strive to bring unity to the Theatre & Dance Department through events and activities; sponsoring student productions; and supporting students' ideas, wants, and needs. We serve as a link between the voices of the students and faculty of the Theatre & Dance Department. Our goal is to provide every opportunity for students to become more involved in the performing arts.

Each year the Dramatist Society hosts an end of the season Sacademy Awards event during which awards for the most outstanding actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, director, original play, new comer, set design, costume design, lighting design, sound design, as well as many others, are given.

Club activities include: Theatre outings (From: San Francisco to Tahoe, Los Angeles to Ashland), concession sales for the Sac State Department of Theatre & Dance productions, hosting opening night parties for the Sac State Department of Theatre & Dance productions, supporting student (directed/acted/designed/written) productions, and active participation in the education and encouragement of grade school and high school students toward live theatre.

The Dramatist Society meets once a week in Shasta Hall Green Room. Meetings are scheduled, by the members, during the first month of each semester. For further information go to
