Theater honor society inducts new members
Concordia’s chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, a national theater honor society, inducted 18 new members in April.
Alpha Psi Omega is a theater honor society recognizing contributions to a particular theater or department. Admittance into Alpha Psi Omega is based on a point system.
“You get points for participating in productions or activities,” said Bryan Moore, assistant professor of communication and theatre. “You can get points for acting, directing, doing tech or designing. They’re all worth different amounts of points.”
In addition to meeting the point requirement, students had to perform a Shakespearean monologue at the induction ceremony to be accepted into Alpha Psi Omega.
“It’s an honor,” said junior Sarah Dinger. “It recognizes all the work we put into the theater department. He [Moore] told us some of the people who have been in it here before and being counted among them is great. They were people I looked up to when I started here.”
