Theater Committee

The Martel College Theatre Committee aims to foster greater theatrical involvement from all Martelians both on Rice campus and in the city of Houston, be it as performers, technicians, designers, and even as audience members. We do this by producing theatrical productions, advertising theatre opportunities around campus, and hosting outings to see theatre productions in the Houston community. In recent memory, we worked with our RA Norma Santamaria to subsidize student tickets to A Chorus Line (September 2019) at Theatre Under the Stars in downtown Houston. We also bought a new stage and stage cart for Martel committees to use for a variety of Martel bonding events, such as Oktoberfest, the Martel Holiday Party, and Awards Night. Most importantly, we have worked with Sid Richardson college to put on successful and innovative productions of The Last Five Years (December 2017) and First Date (March 2019). If you have ideas for the future of Martel theatre or would like to get involved with theatre on campus or in the community, do not hesitate to reach out!
