Ariel Marcus-Hollenbeck '11

"Oswego gave me a sense of home, a place for me to try new aspects of theatre I never thought to try and the space to either fail or succeed."


Jeremy Aldridge '96


"Oswego State gave me the opportunity to explore and grow as an artist. Production values and venues are second to none, and the professors were excellent and became life-long friends."


Ryan Benson Smith '19

Acting/Directing, Stage Management, Dramaturgy

"At SUNY Oswego, I was able to have the kinds of experiences that I wanted without being expected to fit a particular mold. I was able to act, stage manage, do electrics and dramaturgy in my 4 years, where most other programs limit you to one field."

Khari Constantine '17

Actor, Playwright, Dramaturg

"At SUNY Oswego, I discovered myself. What it means to be a person, what it means to be a person in theatre. What it means to be a black man in theatre. Discovering your worth. Discovering what hard work, dedication, and consistency can accomplish. A lot."


Kelsey Clark '16

Stage Manager

"Oswego was the perfect balance of guidance, mentorship, and freedom: anytime I approached a professor saying "hey, I want to try this new thing", they gave me the tools to learn, opportunities to try new skills, a push when I needed it and encouragement when I stretched myself too thin."
