I am Keegan Siebken, Webmaster for Rep Term XV. I am not a regular blogger, but I am the one in charge of making sure the blogs work properly. So, on to business!
On this page you are going to find blogs updated daily by 6 members of Rep Term. The blogs will be filled with the myriad of feelings that we are bound to experience on this 10-week-long adventure, but our main goal, our hope, is that we will be able to sweep aside the veil of mystery that tends to surround Rep Term for those not actively engaged in Rep Term.
For family and friends, we hope to answer the question, “Wherever did (So-and-so) go? I swear they went back to campus…”
For Rep Term alumni, we hope to answer the question, “Is Rep Term still as awesomely-amazingly-fantastically wonderful as I remember it?” (yes).
And for everyone else, welcome to Rep Term! The essentials that you need to know:
Rep Term is an intensive 10-week theatrical immersion program at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois designed to simulate working in a professional repertory theatre. Students spend the term taking theatre classes and working towards the production of two mainstage plays that are performed in nightly rotation at the end of the term. Students all must take part in both acting and behind-the-scenes work. This program is the only program like it at the undergraduate level in the United States. For more information visit the Repertory Theatre Term page on the Knox Website at http://www.knox.edu/x2093.xml.
