1970s Theatre "Fall Ball" Reunion

« Back

“I was grateful for my UT cohorts. Those are my friends for life”
— UT Alumna and Actress, Dale Dickey

October 25-27, 2013

Calling all theatre alumni from the '70s. Remember the “Theatre House,” home to those of us known as “theatre kids” at UT in the '70s. The house quickly became a central meeting place.

Every fall, around Halloween, the Theatre House was the location of our FALL BALL. Matthew Wright (reunion organizer) says the reunion will “recapture the glory of Fall Balls of days past.” He goes on to say, alumni who studied at UT can attest to the high quality of their education and production experiences. Alumni such as Dale Dickey, David Keith, Tim Hopper, Hugh Sinclair and Theresa Williams from this era have been involved with UT and Clarence Brown productions.

Reconnect, remember and forge new alliances sure to lead to meaningful collaborations in days to come.
