William S. E. Coleman Studio Theatre Fund & Guest Artist Series

* The Studio Theatre fund directly supports the continued improvement and maintenance of the Department’s black box theatre, dedicated in honor of beloved playwright, historian and Drake Professor William S. E. Coleman.

* The Guest Artist Series is a fund that underwrites travel and expenses to bring Guest Artists (writers, directors, actors, producers) to Drake to share their expertise and work directly with students in the Department of Theatre Arts.

To make a contribution to the William S. E. Coleman Studio Theatre Fund, the Guest Artist Series or to contribute directly to the Department of Theatre Arts, please go to:


This support, funded by your generosity, makes the work we do at Drake possible, and we thank you!
