Theatre Arts

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 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.

Traveler in the Dark

Apr 22 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Performance Hall

Science, religion and wonder all collide in Marsha Norman's Traveler in the Dark. Sam, an accomplished surgeon, loses a family friend on the operating table, and his son Stephen does not know how to process the tragedy. On a return trip home to bury Mavis, Sam must confront his crumbling marriage, his evangelistic father, and the eternal questions Stephen longs to answer. Traveler in the Dark causes us to consider where we turn when we reach the ends of ourselves and to ponder our commitment to beliefs that are bigger than what we know.
