Theatre Studies

 

Theatre is a long-standing tradition at Millsaps College. Explore the Millsaps Players Archive.

The theatre auditorium bears the name of former Millsaps president Dr. Marion L. Smith, called "Smiley" by Millsaps students because of his mega-watt smile. In his inaugural speech, Smith said, "The one supreme purpose that Millsaps College must continue to follow is that of building character and developing leaders. We want to teach our students to think. Our purpose is the man himself - his mind, his emotions, and his will."
