Dr. Mark Charney, Director
Dr. Mark J. Charney came to Lubbock in 2012, immediately setting goals for the Department of Theatre and Dance to rise to new levels of academic success by arranging for students to attend the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown and creating an intense summer program known as the WildWind Performance Lab. Working with fellow faculty members and students, Dr. Charney has cultivated community outreach programs, a theatre program for autistic students through the Burkhart Center known as the BurkTech Players, and helped the department become the TTU School of Theatre & Dance for the 2015-2016 school year.
