Professor of Theatre
For the 2016-2017 academic year, Catherine Zublin will not be designing nor teaching her usual classes due to being on sabbatical. She is delighted the theatre area has hired Erin Carignan as a visiting assistant professor.
The theatre arts faculty takes pride in the fact that we provide opportunities to really produce theatre as an outgrowth of classroom learning. This helps our students build a body of work that has helped them get jobs and begin graduate programs. The WSU Theatre Arts program is actively involved in the national organization, Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF). Students regularly present their design work at the regional festival. Last year the WSU production of Wit was invited to the festival with costumes she designed. Several of the productions she’s designed have also had the honor of being remounted for the regional Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and The Pirated Penzance was also selected for the national festival in 1994.
Zublin received her education at the University of Colorado- Boulder (BA) and Indiana University- Bloomington (MFA in costume design). In addition to her design work, she teaches academic classes, advises students and takes an active role in the governance and administration of Weber State University. She is the Chair of Design, Technology and Management for The Kennedy Center American College?Theatre Festival Region VIII.
