About Yale Drama Coalition

Mission Statement

The Yale Drama Coalition (YDC) was founded in 1999 to foster a union of student voices impassioned by theater at Yale. The YDC seeks to foster communication and collaboration within the undergraduate theater community and provides guidance and resources for theatrical productions. The YDC Board is actively engaged in advocating for the needs of the theater community to the Yale administration, in addition to creating programming and events to enrich the theatrical life on campus. The organization has an open membership and welcomes input and participation from all interested Yale students. Roughly 650 undergraduates will be actively involved with YDC activities each year.
