Jeff Herrmann, chair of theatre and dance, to finish last semester at BW

“I wanted to go somewhere that had a really exciting theatre department, so I came to Baldwin Wallace in 1997,” Herrmann said.

Chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance, Jeff Herrmann.

Jeff Herrmann, chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance, is working through his last semester of teaching and leading a production season.  

Herrmann said he first came to Baldwin Wallace University after realizing a small school he was located at in Georgia was not going to grow.  

“I wanted to go somewhere that had a really exciting theatre department, so I came to Baldwin Wallace in 1997,” Herrmann said.  

 He has been a scene and lighting designer for many years as well as helping bring productions to life through his time at BW.

One production that Herrmann is working in collaboration with students on is “Sweat.” The show will run in the Black Box Theatre from March 20 to March 24.  

Herrmann is collaborating with a senior theatre design and technical student, Jason Luck, on that production.  

“[Luck] will be designing that production,” Hermann said. “I will be observing him and guiding him through the process for designing ‘Sweat.”’ 

Luck has known about this project since Spring 2023 and has had time since to design the set to make it come to life this semester.  He works in the shop seven hours a week split between two days, so the set for “Sweat” can be built.  He is getting ready for the show to begin in March and showcase the set. 

“I find this piece to be rather contemporary with the actor strike that has occurred recently.  The content of ‘Sweat’ relates to modern-day issues and therefore should relate to a modern-day audience,” Luck says.   

Luck said he is excited to have the opportunity to work with Herrmann in his final semester.  

“I learn so much from Jeff,” Luck said. “Whenever I hit a snag, I know I can go to Jeff for help.”
