Florida Memorial University and Herman LeVern Jones’ TheatreSouth, Inc. (HLJTS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, are joining forces to offer an expanded array of theatrical experiences to the University and the community at large. This pairing is a solid step forward in Florida Memorial’s commitment to bring the “communiversity” concept to fruition. HLJTS is a professional theatre company with a dedication to world transformation through the arts in general and theatre in particular, and will be a significant contribution to the University.
Through this collaboration the community will have access to a full menu of musicals, classic plays, play readings acting classes, workshops, guest lectures, youth productions and a theatre business training program. In addition to the entertainment options, there will be opportunities for students to enhance their soft skills, such as critical thinking, workplace communication, problem solving and time management. All of these are qualities that transform our students into attractive candidates for employment, graduate school or entrepreneurship.
Bringing this endeavor to fruition will only make our future and future stars shine brighter!
