Theater in the Cities
I came to Macalester never having been to Minnesota. When I arrived, I was surprised by an orientation experience called “Into the Streets,” in which members of each first-year course go into the Twin Cities community to see how their course topic connects to the Cities. My class, “Theatre and Performance in the Twin Cities,” visited a handful of the numerous theaters here. We met the owners—and often the directors and actors— of these places and learned about volunteer and internship opportunities.
