Founded in 1926, Sock and Buskin is the oldest student organization on the campus of Murray State University. Until the early 1960's Sock and Buskin was the sole producing organization for theatre at Murray. With the completion of the Doyle Fine Arts Center and the establishment of an on-going producing program within the curricular framework of the Drama Department - now the Department of Theatre - Sock and Buskin's mission evolved into what it is today, a strong support system for the MSU Theatre.
Further purposes of Sock and Buskin are:
to develop and encourage loyalty to the Alma Mater
to aid and assist in Department of Theatre productions
to develop an appreciation for theatre in the MSU community
Sock and Buskin members can be found on the stage, in the booth, behind the scenes and in the box office for any production, whether it's in the Robert E. Johnson Theatre, the Studio Theatre, or Lovett Auditorium!
