Wig and Buckle Theater Company

The oldest continually operational student organization on campus, Wig and Buckle annually produces three to four shows a year. Wig and Buckle also serves as the resident theater company for the LVC English Department’s Theater Concentration, playing a vital co-curricular role in the training and application of students’ theater skills. 

The organization is advised by its executive director, Dr. Kevin Pry ’76, Associate Professor of English at LVC and an experienced dramaturg and director with many ties to the mid-state theatrical community.

Wig and Buckle is open to all LVC students and meets every Friday at 4 p.m. in Leedy Theater.
