We, Meadowlark Shakespeare Players, are the latest generation of the Shakespeare & Performance MFA company at Mary Baldwin University. The MFA, Master of Fine Arts, degree is typically the third year of study in the Shakespeare & Performance Program. Upon completing the Master of Letters curriculum, students establish an independent company and execute a comprehensive performance season, utilizing the foundational skills and knowledge they have acquired. Introduced in 2012, the company model gives students practical experience as they take on company roles as dramaturgs, directors, actors, designers, educators, and production managers, creating interdisciplinary and collaborative theatre professionals. The MFA program, which spans 30 credit-hours over a full calendar year, culminates in a festival presentation of a repertoire of at least five plays, and students collaboratively produce a book detailing their company's work.
