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.

Measure for Measure

Apr 28 7:30 p.m.

Performance Hall

Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, considered one of his “problem plays,” explores the themes of justice and mercy, law and grace, sin and virtue. The title probably comes from Matthew 7:2, “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” The play swings from comedy to tragedy to romance and ends in the triumph of mercy. Subject matter may not be appropriate for children under 12. An audience talk-back follows each performance.
