Verandah Experience

When Jon Voss enrolled in Theatre in Chicago, he didn’t realize how fulfilling the experience would be.

“I wanted to do something interesting that would allow me to explore my theatre minor in more depth,” he says. "I loved the experience. Carin Silkaitis does a great job finding productions that span a wide range of genres and types.” Past shows have included “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” “Saint Nick” and “Wasteland.”

Jon recommends Verandah courses because they support learning outside the classroom. “They allow students and professors to interact in an environment without lecturing and note-taking,” he says. “I’ve also occasionally had opportunities to talk with professional production casts and crews. It’s a great experience and I’m fortunate that North Central provides students with it.”
