From large Shakespearean productions to small ensemble cast performances and sometimes a musical, you’ll have the opportunity to experience an entertaining night (or day) of live theatre. All performances are open to the public.
Many of the plays are directed by theatre arts students as their senior recital. These productions consist of primarily a student cast and crew. Productions are staged in either Stratton Hall or Performance Hall, a thrust stage theater and a favorite for audiences, who feel as though they’re a part of the play.

28 Steps: A Reformation Play
Oct 28 7:30 p.m.
The doctrine of salvation by faith alone through grace alone is the cornerstone of the Reformation. But what do faith and grace mean? And who gets to decide? The storied Roman Catholic Church—or upstart Protestants? The answers clash like two armies when a devout Nun surprises Martin Luther and his wife, Katharine at their home. Will the Luthers convince the Nun to abandon her religious order? Or will the Nun silence the troublesome priest once and for all? Come see the answer and consider the ramifications of the Reformation on the church and our contemporary culture.
