Inquiry 2014 Reflection from Rosemary Bucher '14
04.08.14 |
Rosemary Bucher '14 is a senior English and music business major from Palmyra, Pa. She reflects on her Inquiry 2014 presentation, "Process to Production: The Work of the Wig and Buckle Theater Company," in the following:

As a completely student-run enterprise (with guidance from our faculty advisor, Dr. Pry) Wig and Buckle has a very unique and effective structure. Students do everything: the lights, set design and construction, acting, publicity, directing, ticket sales, and other jobs. Founded in 1935, we have a great tradition of quality performance.

This Thursday, Keifer Kemmerly and I are presenting about Wig and Buckle in a presentation titled “Process to Production: The Work of the Wig and Buckle Theater Company.” My research includes observations and lessons that I’ve learned over four years of working with Wig and Buckle in various capacities.

I became involved with Wig and Buckle the first day of my freshmen year, and I’m proud to say that it will definitely be one of the lasting experiences of my time at LVC. Counting our annual “Showcase,” I have performed in nine Wig and Buckle productions, worked in the box office for three, and directed two very different shows, the play “Dog Sees God” and the musical “Chess.” I’ve been the publicity coordinator for over two years now, and I served on the season selection committee for two years. I’ve watched shows develop from the initial season selection discussion, to the director elections, through auditions, and finally, to opening night. This involvement and knowledge of the entire theatrical process helped me obtain an internship, and gave me planning and creative skills that will stay with me long after I graduate.

I’m thrilled that Wig and Buckle is being featured at Inquiry because we have the opportunity to share the details of our process. Wig and Buckle is an example of creative student collaboration that happens every day at LVC. The theater company allows for practical application of the skills we learn in the classroom, and it allows us to see our ideas and thoughts become reality.
