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 spring, University Theatre is proud to present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a Tony Award-winning musical by Rachel Sheinkin and William Finn.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee tells the uproarious tale of six over-achieving and quirky adolescents vying for a spelling championship, overseen by equally colorful adults. Tuneful, clever and heartwarming, it imparts life lessons such as 'winning isn't everything' and 'losing doesn't make you a loser.'"
