“I got involved with the Sock ‘n’ Buskin (SnB) in my first year at Carleton. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to direct, stage manage, act, and work backstage in nine shows. What makes SnB special is that it’s more than just a theatre company; it’s a friendship company. We’re a diverse group of people, but our common interest in theatre makes us a strong community. With SnB, I’ve learned about effective communication, teamwork, and leadership, but above all I’ve learned the value of friendship.”

—Tamara, Journalism student with a minor in English and a minor in Film Studies
