Professor of Theatre Arts Ray Schultz has earned a Lake Region Arts Council (LRAC) Spring Project Grant to produce the contemporary musical Spring Awakening in November 2017. The project, he says, is vital to student success and learning outcomes at the University of Minnesota, Morris.

"It's vital that theatre and music students get to do musical theatre," Schultz says. "This is part of the job for theatre artists and high-school music and theatre teachers, but it's important for all liberal arts students to experience at least one musical in their undergraduate careers."

Schultz envisions a yearlong series of collaborative projects and activities, with the musical as the centerpiece. More information will be made available at

This activity is funded in part by a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council through a Minnesota State Legislative appropriation.
