    Student participation in theater production as an enriching out-of- the-classroom experience in language learning has long been a tradition at UCSC. In 1972, LES TRÉTEAUX D'ESSAI (The Santa Cruz Stage) under the direction of Dr. Miriam Ellis, offered a program of theater and music in French during its first season. Almost every year since that time, students of French have performed fully- staged productions in their target language for campus and community audiences.
