NOMADS produces original student-written theatre each semester, and is one of only two clubs at Columbia University that presents student-writing for the stage. From playwrights and composers, to actors, directors, designers, and technicians, NOMADS is dedicated to fostering artistic growth and collaboration among Columbia University theatre artists. Through producing and developing original student theatrical works, we aim to encourage emerging theatre artists to explore their creativity and develop their own particular crafts for the stage. We seek to present challenging, entertaining, and thought-provoking material for audiences at Columbia and in the wider New York theatre world. In addition to full productions, NOMADS programs include: The NOMADS Theatre Workshop and The PlayPen.
