Theatre Professor and Associate Dean of the Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities
Catherine Zublin is a Professor of Theatre Arts, the costume designer and mentor for student costumers. She is delighted that the theatre area is producing a season of award winning plays for 2014-2015. In the fall, she will design the costumes for Wit. She will mentor student designers for two other mainstage productions, She Loves Me and Damn Yankees. 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 The Plain Princess was invited to the festival with costumes designed by student Amanda Shaffer. 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 currently serves as the Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities at WSU. She is the Chair of Design, Technology and Management for The Kennedy Center American College?Theatre Festival Region VIII.
