Dramatic Arts Society

The Dramatic Arts Society (DAS) is an organization that produces quality theater experiences for the Pacific Union College community. Students, faculty, staff and community members form an ensemble of actors, directors, designers and stage managers that collaborates on comedies, tragedies, musicals and original works.. The new Alice Holst Theater, which opened in March of 2007, is a black-box theater that is used for productions and a variety of stage production classes offered through the Drama Program of the English Department.

Recent shows include original works such as “My Alice” (2011) which explored the story behind the story of Alice in Wonderland; “This Adventist Life” (2010), featured a montage of scenes exploring our Adventist heritage modeled on the NPR Radio Show “This American Life; “Clay Feet/Wire Wings” (2009), showcased a dramatic staging of poems by Professor John McDowell; and “Red Books: Our Search for Ellen White” which toured Southern California in the fall of 2007.  DAS also produces classical works, most recently “Iphigenia 2.0” by Chuck Mee and Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” both produced in the amphitheater behind Stauffer Hall.  Other past works include Thorton Wilder's "The Skin of Our Teeth" and "Our Town," Moliere's "The Misanthrope," and the musical "Fiddler on the Roof," produced in the Lincoln Theater in Yountville.
