Your assignment is to write a letter to the President and Board of Trustees outlining the benefits of

studying theatre, keeping our core values in mind. What have you learned about the theatre this term that

this craft to other areas of your life/career? How does participation in and patronage of the theatre reflect

our core values? This is a persuasive piece, so make sure you support your claims with thoughtful details.

The paper must be:

 Double-spaced

 In 12-point font

Submit this assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 8.
