Professor Dikranian gets in character for the musical.

If you are worried that medical school means the end of singing, dancing, and screaming like a madman (aka acting), then have no fear! Each year, students from all of the WUSM programs put together a full-scale musical. No matter your experience level, you can get involved on-stage as a cast member, backstage as a director or crewmember, or simply in the audience by applauding your classmates in April. This year, I am performing in Young Frankenstein, and the whole experience has been a blast. This chance to embrace the humanities and performance is one that I appreciate every rehearsal, especially as I work with people from different programs who have such vibrancy, creativity, and talent.
