Most recently, theater major Morgan Chase spent the spring semester at the academy, studying and preparing a production of Red for a performance yet to be determined at a theater in Zagreb.

It is a performance done by students and their professor of theater directing, Professor Branko Brezovec. The play is based on the novel by Robert Musil, Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törless (The Confusions of Young Törless).
