Information about the
2022–2023 Season Selection Process
All community members of the Performing Arts Department at Emerson College are invited to anonymously submit titles that they would like to be considered for the upcoming season.
Over the course of the summer, all submissions are vetted by one of five subcommittees (Acting, Theatre, Design/Tech and Stage Management, Musical Theatre, and Theatre Education). Each of these subcommittees is made up entirely of students and led by a faculty member. At the end of the summer, each subcommittee puts forth their top five titles from the submissions for further consideration by the full Emerson Stage Season Selection Committee.
Over the course of the fall semester, the Emerson Stage Committee (made up of faculty and staff) is joined by a student representative from each of the five subcommittee, plus a sixth at-large student representative, to take the top five titles and put together our nine-show season.
The purpose of the Emerson Stage season is to safely produce a diverse range of necessary stories that give us the opportunity to experience different styles and voices that we can and should elevate.

Since our work in the 2020–2021 season was shared digitally through the internet, let’s take a moment to consider the legacies of colonization embedded within the technologies, structures, and ways of thinking we use every day. We are using equipment and high-speed internet, not available in many rural and Indigenous communities. Even the technologies that are central to us right now, leave significant carbon footprints, contributing to changing climates that disproportionately affect Indigenous peoples worldwide.
