Improv, Film, & Theatre
As Wellesley’s only improvisational comedy group, Dead Serious takes pride in being Wellesley’s most prestigious improvisational comedy group. Dead Serious has single-handedly sustained laughter and spontaneity on Wellesley’s campus since the dawn of acid-wash jeans. The group’s broad range of talents include performing short and long form improv and will step into the internet age this year with online digital shorts.
The Film Society is a Wellesley College student organization comprised of students who love movies. We hold numerous movie-related events over the year including parties and trivia contests. Primarily, Film Society screens two films every Friday and Saturday night of the semester, including blockbusters, independents, and documentaries.
Upstage is Wellesley's student theater organization where students are able to apply the liberal arts education to the practice of theater. All our productions are student acted, directed, and designed, ranging from world classics to contemporary drama.
