HISTORY: With roots dating back to 1893 , the Thalian Blackfriars are one of the oldest chartered theatrical societies in America. Beginning as the Thalian Dramatic Club, the group merged with a rival theatrical outfit known as the Blackfriars in 1931, thus forming the Thalian Blackfriars. TBF went on to help create what is now The University of Georgia's Department of Theatre in 1939.

MISSION: To provide undergraduate students with experience in all areas of theatrical production, including acting, directing, writing, stage management, light/costume/set design, and producing. Thalian Blackfriars strives to create theatre that is relevant to our education, community, and world.
