This history of theatre at Ricks College provides the only comprehensive written work available on the subject. Whenever available, the thesis provides the reader with concise information concerning plays performed, their authors, the directors, performance dates, and performance locations. Changes and growth in course curriculum offerings, physical facilities, and faculty have been recorded as well. The work reveals that Ricks College theatre has been a vital contribution to theatre in the Upper Snake River valley of Southeastern Idaho.
This comprehensive history will serve as a resource for future departmental planning in the Department of Theatre at Ricks College, and for future study, by the Church Educational System of The Church of Christ of Latter-day Saints, of the relationship between schools within that system.
