  • SAU selects new theatre director ahead of fall performance season

    Brittany Bara has been named theatre director at Southern Arkansas University, said Dr. Helmut Langerbein, dean of the College of Liberal and Performing Arts.

    “I’ve rarely seen that search committees, administrators, and students unanimously agree on one candidate as their top choice as it has been the case with Brittany,” Langerbein said. “We look forward to her bringing her talents, experiences, and ideas to SAU and Magnolia.” She will start in the fall.

    “I have a diverse theatrical background,” Bara said. “While primarily a performer, I have also worked as a teacher, coach, director, and behind the scenes as a General/Company manager.  I am excited to put all the many facets of my professional knowledge into to the Theatre program at SAU – to ensure that the students get the rigorous training a BFA degree requires and our field demands, while building the SAU name and reputation within the Arkansas theatre community and beyond. As the Director of Theatre, I am committed to creating an active learning environment, fostering rich, meaningful work that enriches the lives of students and the community.” (more…)
