VOX History

VOX began more as an idea than an organization. It was a desire to bring musical theatre to WPI's campus. In the spring of 2004, the WPI Vocal Performance Lab (an auditioned chamber group) undertook staging a production of Professor John Delorey's Witchwife. It was a single performance in Riley but it's success spurred the planning for a larger production. Over the next year the plans would be put in place to stage a production of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd in September of 2006. It was a success and was soon followed with productions of The Mikado, The Threepenny Opera, South Pacific, and Guys and Dolls. Starting after the close of The Mikado, a number of the veteran students, having two shows under their belt looked to have our group officially recognized as a student organization. Elections were held, officers chosen, and the next year was spent gathering signatures, creating a constitution and working with SAO to file all of the necessary paperwork. On October 22, 2008 VOX was officially recognized by the Student Organization Council.
