Celebrate Constitution Day–September 17th

What is Constitution Day?

Educational institutions throughout the United States celebrate the anniversary of the completion of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. This day came about due to Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia’s desire to increase student knowledge of the United States Constitution. Something he felt they were lacking. In 2004 the amendment passed by both the House and Senate, establishing the annual federal observance of Constitution Day. The law requires all educational institutions receiving federal funds implement educational programs relating to the United States Constitution on September 17th of each year.

Everybody gets into the act

Whether you spell it theater or theatre, Pegasus Players at Norwich University has been an integral part of student life on campus for more than a century. Norwich gives students opportunities to study theatre academically and produce live performances.

Pegasus Players, Norwich University’s oldest continuously operating student organization, typically produces two performances a year. The performances rotate every two years between musicals, comedies and serious dramas and classics. The troupe also produces student play festivals, featuring original works written and directed by students, and Norwich Voices for International Women's Day, a spoken-word event about women's issues on campus and around the world.

Norwich’s theatre program welcomes students with little or no theatre experience, and new students have opportunities to quickly advance to leadership roles. First-year students can earn leading roles and students can become lead designers, technical director, associate producers, playwrights and even directors as early as their sophomore years. Norwich offers formal internships and apprenticeships in these areas for our highest-performing students. Consequently, theatre students can quickly develop professional-level skills and leadership abilities that will benefit their careers after graduation.
