First-Year Seminar Play

Each fall, the FYS program takes students into Portland to see live theatre on some of the city’s most renowned stages.

In addition to this common experience, co-curricular events are strongly encouraged and financially supported in individual FYS sections, ranging from attending Timbers soccer games to attending art galleries in the Portland area.

Last year's theatre production was Fun Home at Portland Center Stage, a musical based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir under the same title. The theater’s artistic director, Chris Coleman, visited campus to discuss the backstage production of putting on the musical.
