Student Opportunities

Webb Spinners

Webb Spinners is Gardner-Webb’s Student Theater Society and is open to all students regardless of major or minor. Some activities include:

  • singing telegrams and sonnets: “to order” poetry delivered by actors on holidays like Valentine’s Day;
  • The Black Widow Ball: an end-of-the-year costume banquet celebrating the work the department has created throughout the year;
  • Concessions: the student society takes charge of the concessions sold at intermission of main stage performances;
  • Production documentation: the students take responsibility for documenting department activities throughout the year and compiling them in a scrapbook and slideshow at the Black Widow Ball;
  • T-shirts: perhaps the most important aspect of any group is the identification of its members with the organization. By developing logos for display on t-shirts, hats, and other items, the society builds camaraderie and identification with the Theater Program and
  • Campus Tours: Aiding in student recruitment, the Webb Spinners give tours to potential theater students, teaching them “the ropes,” and making sure you feel at home.
