"A crew of patches, rude mechanicals ... were met together to rehearse a play ... "
- A Midsummer Night's Dream (III.ii)
About:The Dartmouth Rude Mechanicals
is Dartmouth College's only student-run Shakespeare troupe, rehearsing and staging productions once a term. Recent productions have included Hamlet
, Twelfth Night
, Merry Wives
, A Midsummer Night's Dream
, and The Tempest
Group leadership differs slightly from term to term, but we have a rotating Company Manager and Treasurer. All group members are expected to contribute to a unified artistic vision; i.e. - there is no single director or dramaturg.
Auditions take place usually once a year, depending on the needs of the group. Students from all class years are encouraged to audition.
