THEATRE

Good Evening Theatre
The College of Social and Media Culture in Torun boasts an activity of student’s Good Evening Theatre led by the priest and lecturer of our School Fr Dariusz Drążek CSsR. The Theatre aims at cultivation of word culture and heritage of Polish and foreign literature. It gives students an opportunity to extend their knowledge and sensibility but also acquire skills of controlling stress and motion.
In the Theatre repertoire you can find plays written by masters of Polish poetry and drama, e.g. : Zbigniew Herbert, Aleksander Fredo or Sławomir Mrożek. Actors from Good Evening Theatre also had a chance to take part in “Romeo and Juliet”, a well-known William Shakespeare’s masterpiece.
The plays are not only shown in our College but also during many other cultural events. Some are recorded by radio and television.
In the College offer you can find journalistic and theatrical workshop led by devoted and professional actors. This academic year, during Foreign Languages Days, we had a pleasure to welcome Roger Williams, a Cambridge alumnus in history and music and Queen Elisabeth’s II special adviser on education. As a well-known and experienced actor he ran theatrical workshop for the students.
In Good Evening Theatre every student of Polish or other nationality can find out how fantastic it feels to be an actor.
