Dartmouth Rude Mechanicals

"A crew of patches, rude mechanicals ... were met together to rehearse a play ... " 
- A Midsummer Night's Dream (III.ii)


The Dartmouth Rude Mechanicals is Dartmouth College's only student-run Shakespeare troupe, rehearsing and staging productions once a term. Recent productions have included HamletTwelfth Night, Merry WivesA Midsummer Night's Dream, Cymbeline, 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.
