Pegasus Players, Norwich University’s theater company, has been helping students escape the stresses of academic life since 1927.

Students who love to perform have the chance to take part in two productions—comedy, drama and musicals—every year. In addition to acting, there is stagecraft, lighting, directing and even playwriting to enjoy and master. Faculty advisors from the English Department work to ensure the company is an inclusive and joyous experience for everyone who takes part.

This video takes us behind the scenes as the Players put together A Festival of Shorts. This stripped-down series of funny sketches and short plays, staged without a special set, featured several student directors and pieces written by faculty and one student.
