Undergraduate Research & Internships

Theatre students can hone their performance abilities by participating in MU Players (link:, Monmouth’s student-run theatre organization. MU Players allows students to gain experience in every level of production, including their own fully-staged musicals. Students assume all leadership responsibilities, from the securing of rights and budgeting to performance, direction, musical direction, design, and choreography. The organization produces several events each year, including Cabaret For A Cause, which raises thousands of dollars annually for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
