Pen, Paint, and Pretzels: Who We Are
Founded in 1910 (making us the oldest student organization on campus), 3Ps produces student-run performances of all sorts and kinds.
Each Semester, 3Ps stages one major production and two workshop productions. In addition, 3Ps stages an orientation show every September. Students control every aspect of all 3Ps shows, so there are many opportunities to act, direct, design, stage manage, and produce through the organization.
Apart from producing its own annual season, 3Ps serves as the umbrella organization for many other student performing arts groups. Groups under the 3Ps umbrella include Torn Ticket II (Tufts' musical theatre organization), Bare Bodkin (student-written and experimental theatre), HYPE! (a mime troupe), Traveling Treasure Trunk (a children's theatre company), TUTV (a film production group), comedy and improv groups such as Major: Undecided, the Institute, and Cheap Sox, and dance ensembles such as Sarabande and Tap Ensemble.
Meetings are held at the Balch Arena Theatre in the Aidekman Center for the Arts on Mondays during open block (at noon). Also, check the call board in the lobby of Aidekman for audition information and more. We encourage and welcome everyone to get involved regardless of major, and we hope to see you soon!
