The Shafer Alliance Laboratory Theatre
(SALT) is a performance/directing lab that affords Theatre VCU students the opportunity to present works focused primarily on the essentials of performance in a creative and impartial manner. The student-run Shafer Steet Lab offers students another outlet for further development of critical theatrical skills, such as script analysis, dramaturgy, research, and communication. All productions are produced with minimal technical demands in the 150 seat Richard Newdick Theatre
housed in the Shafer Street Playhouse.
The Department of Theatre encourages and supports the students’ efforts in special interest groups and has endorsed the follow student theatre groups:
• Guild of Graduate Students (GOGS) - Supports, funds, and provides an outlet for graduate student productions and projects
• No Shame Variety Show
- Monthly variety show organized by Theatre VCU students highlighting individual talents on the Newdick stage.
Under Theatre VCU’s umbrella, studio projects, play readings and guest artists are some of the many activities sponsored by these organizations.
Shafer Alliance Laboratory Theatre is an S.G.A. recognized and funded student organization at Virginia Commonwealth University
SALT is theatre for the students and by the students at VCU. We invite everyone to join them for their jam packed season.
