Plays and Theatre Arts Productions

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.

Tickets

Tickets are $6.50–$12 or $23–$43 for major productions.
