TEGA Fest is Coming Up!

posted Feb 14, 2017, 7:02 PM by Katherine Goldman

TEGA Fest is on its way: are you ready to play?

TEGA Fest is a 3-day festival event dedicated to celebrating the diverse talents and skills of the students of TEGA. Think interactive TED Talks for Theatre Ed, or the funnest, chillest theatre education conference this side of the Mississippi - only better, because it's totally free! 

TEGA Fest will take place over March 16th-18th in the Cabaret Theatre and throughout the Emerson campus. Expect to learn with your cohort, work with some incredible guest artists, and show off your talents with a Hidden Talent Show. We'll be announcing the specific line-up soon, so for now, mark those dates on your calendar! You won't want to miss out on the fun.

We are currently taking submissions for skill shares, performances, and student-led workshops! Sign up by going to and filling out that form. Submissions are due by February 17th.

Sign up now for the Cabaret

posted Feb 20, 2013, 9:47 PM by

This year's TEGA Cabaret is themed "Love & Hate (in the Times of Influenza)". We are looking for people who are interested in performing an approximately 3-7 minute piece (i.e. dance, song, scene. monologue) that fits into the theme of this year's Cabaret.

The Nuts and Bolts:

- Pieces can be any length up to 7 minutes.
- A person can be apart of 2 group pieces, 1 group and 1 solo piece, or 1 solo piece.
- We will not be able to provide a piano at the performance; pieces with music must provide a track playable by an iPod.
- The Cabaret will be held on Sunday, April 28th in the afternoon, with a tech rehearsal immediately before the show and a dress rehearsal on Sunday, April 21st.
- Each piece will be self-rehearsed; rehearsals will be held at the artist's convenience. Each piece must schedule at least 1-2 rehearsals that the producers can attend to check in with you/the group.
- You can edit this form after you have turned it in, if you need to change details about the piece or its participants.

We are hoping to get permission to have the proceeds of the show go to charity, so we will be looking for help in other aspects besides performing.

Student Production Fund

posted Feb 7, 2013, 6:36 PM by

The Student Production Fund was donated by an Emerson parent in the fall of 2011 exclusively to help finance student-run productions, both undergraduate and graduate. There was $50,000; $25,000 now remains. In order to qualify for a grant, your production must involve at least 2/3 Emerson students, and the maximum amount you can request is $5,000. More specific guidelines about the fund and proposal forms to apply for funding from it can be found on the 5th floor of Tufte, in the reception area of the Performing Arts office. Proposals should be submitted the semester prior to your production going up. Applications for summer and fall 2013 productions will be accepted between 2/15/13 and 3/15/13. For questions about the fund, please email Jason Allen at
