Peer Theatre

Our 2024-25 Season will be announced SOON!

Peer Theatre is a program entering its seventh year with Off the Lake and is focused on creating and fostering dialogue about difficult social topics across the Ohio State community, in addition to putting on its annual Night of One Acts. Each performance consists of 2-3 skits and will be followed by small and large group discussions facilitated by trained OTL members.  We also provide resource sheets at the end of each performance in case any audience member is interested in learning more about the topics presented or finds something within our performance triggering in any way. Through these skits, we hope to promote the four pillars of Residence Life: Community, Wellness, Learning, and Inclusion.

For general membership, the rolling application is live throughout Autumn semester. You can join at any time and attend our once-weekly meetings for opportunities to write and perform skits, discuss theatre's social impacts, and make amazing friends!

For a closer look at what it's like to be part of OTL's Peer Theatre, check out the vlogs created by the 2018 ensemble:
