The theatre department presents one production each semester. A variety of works, including dramas, comedies, and musicals, have been produced. Students and members of the community can audition for acting roles or volunteer for technical areas of production (costumes, set construction, sound, lighting, makeup, stage management, etc).

This fall, University Theatre is proud to present
Melancholy Play by award-winning author Sarah Ruhl.
flapper on fainting couch - black and white

"Melancholy Play mixes the absurdity of Pirandello and Fellini and the edgy prettiness of Edna St. Vincent Millay. Off-beat, lyrical and just a little bit nutty, it is a real charmer."  -- Chicago Sun-Times
