Hidden Georgia Tech: DramaTech Theater
By Victor Rogers April 11, 2016
Across the Georgia Tech campus, hidden spaces and forgotten places await rediscovery. Some are relics of an earlier time, difficult to find and explore. Others are very much in view, but often overlooked. Hidden Georgia Tech is a photo essay series highlighting places on campus that largely go unnoticed, but are hidden in plain sight.
DRAMATECH'S DEAN JAMES E. DULL THEATRE
Georgia Tech’s student-run theater, DramaTech, is the oldest continuously running theater in Georgia. The Institute’s first dramatic organization started in 1913. The group disbanded during World War II, but in 1947 a group of theater supporters created the Georgia Tech Dramatic Club. For years, DramaTech presented its plays in a variety of venues, including the YMCA, Fowler Street School Auditorium, and an old church at Hemphill and Ferst Streets. Since 1992, DramaTech’s Dean James E. Dull Theatre has been adjoined to the Robert Ferst Center for the Arts. Let’s go backstage.
