Better World Theatre: Brock Scholars

Students in Samford’s Brock Scholars program piloted a unique new program, when they presented two short plays to an audience of their peers. The performance was part of the Mann Center’s Better World Theatre initiative, which allows students to think critically about ethical issues in their field of study by acting out scenarios they are likely to encounter in the professional world.

Following each play, the actors led the audience in a lively discussion of the issues presented. Megan McElroy directed the productions, Ben Jones and Annika Cousins served as stage managers, and Emily Mallory assisted with planning and promotions.
