Transitions – helping students cope with the stress of college life

April 5th, 2013 by Amy

Plymouth State University’s TIGER (Theatre Integrating Guidance, Education and Responsibility) presents Transitions, an educational production based on the writings of Plymouth State University students about sensitive issues that cause students stress. The production uses theatre, music and dance to illustrate ways in which college age students can cope with the stressors of college life and make positive choices for themselves and others. The production is funded under a three-year Garrett Lee Smith Campus Suicide Prevention Grant by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

The performances and discussions will be held from 7-8:30 p.m., April 10, 11, 12 and April 14 at 4 p.m. in Hyde Hall Room 120.  The performances are acceptable for high school and college-age students and adults. There is no charge for admission.

Performance Highlights


“I watched as a parent, a teacher, colleague and friend. My mind was racing with emotions and these feelings all stemmed from students’ voices through their writing. They conveyed such a powerful message.”
