School of Theatre & Dance
Outreach & Engagement
An ensemble of artists from Texas Tech's Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research and School of Theatre & Dance, The BurkTech Players provides a nurturing environment to encourage, extol, and extend collaboration through shared experiences of the performing arts with individuals on the autism spectrum.
Led by graduate students from the School of Theatre & Dance and students from the Burkhart Center, The BurkTech Players offers the ensemble an opportunity to practice their craft, culminating in a production at the end of each semester. Past productions include musicals, devised work, original plays, dance, and the classics. The BurkTech Players offers students a safe place to be themselves, to learn from each other, and to understand diverse perspectives.
