Program News

The School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies is excited to announce that multidisciplinary theatre artist and puppeteer Aaron Cromie will be a guest on our faculty in the Spring 2018 semester!

You may recognize her as Detective Baker, on CBS’ hit TV show Blue Bloods. Abigail (Gustafson) Hawk ‘04 knew she wanted to be an actor ever since she played Gretl in a community theatre production of The Sound of Music. She spent her formative years of actor training while an undergraduate in the University of Maryland’s Theatre program.

University of Maryland (UMD) alumni John Ford ‘64 and Sandra Poster ‘64 met during their undergraduate years in the UMD Theatre program, then known as Speech & Dramatic Arts. They went on to build careers in speech and communications, and they are longtime patrons of the arts.
