Mission Statement

The purpose of the ALPHA ZETA DELTA Chapter of ALPHA PSI OMEGA is to stimulate interest in theatre activities at the University of Missouri and to secure for the university all the advantages and mutual helpfulness provided by a large national honor society. By electing students to membership, the society provides a reward for their participation in theatre activities of the university. The society will give acknowledgement to those demonstrating a high standard of accomplishment in theatre, and provide a wider fellowship for those interested in theatre. Our chapter, most of all, intends to improve the craft, quality, and scholarship of theatre in our department, focusing on the development of the artist/scholar.

So what is APO?

Alpha Psi Omega is an honorary theatre society created as an addition to the Mizzou theatre community. We are here as cheerleaders for the theatre department as well as a resource for students interested in theatre or simply taking theatre classes. APO members are dedicated to theatre arts and honing their craft and are here to help others do the same. We are a new chapter and are always looking for new members to be involved.

How do I become a Member?

To be a member, you must have 8 points to join. You receive points based on your involvement in theatre at Mizzou. Further information can be found on the APO board in the hallway at the Rhynsburger Theatre and the current APO application (pdf).

What has APO done lately?

In the past, APO has hosted receptions after performances, tutored students taking Script Analysis, and organized a Senior Gala. This semester we are planning a Cabaret night and more receptions, as well as helping run the Larry Clark Actors Workshop. This workshop is designed to help interested students develop acting techniques. Currently, the organization has been working with local high schools and the community to show the expanding theatre department at Mizzou.
