Christ College: The First-Year Production

Fall 2023

For more than fifty years, Christ College — The Honors College students have been charged with writing, producing, and performing an original musical. The idea began in 1974 when speech and drama Professor Van Kussrow returned from Coventry with the revelation that theater could bring a Christ College cohort together. Each cohort takes the texts and discussions from the classroom, infusing them with current events and the unique talents of that year’s crop of students. From Joan of Arc to Pluto, God of the Underworld, First-Year Productions have incorporated everything under the sun – up to and including a singing, dancing pot roast.
