Join the Department of Theatre and Lesley Ferris's friends and family as we celebrate her career at Ohio State. A short program will begin at 5:30 p.m.
Lesley Ferris began her career at Ohio State in 1998 when she was hired to serve as department chair. She served as chair from 1998 - 2005 and as interim chair from 2014 - 2016. Under her leadership, the department emphasized a focus on new works, international collaboration and study, and collaboration with partners across campus and within the community. She has mentored twenty-one doctoral students through their dissertation. While at Ohio State, Ferris has directed eighteen productions for the department. Highlights of her directing career in our department include Angels in America: Perestroika, St. Joan of the Stockyards, Sleep Deprivation Chamber, The Camouflage Project, and Forbidden Zones: The Great War, the last three of which integrated media with live performance.
