The theatre department produces two performances each academic year as part of the Celebrating Arts and Ideas series. Theatre majors participate in all areas of production, and students of all majors are welcome to audition.
The 2014-2015 season features:
November 7-8 and 12-15
"Dancing at Lughnasa"
April 17-18 and 22-25
This extraordinary play, widely regarded as Friel's masterpiece, is the study of five unmarried sisters, told from the perspective of the now adult, love-child Michael. On the threshold of the autumn of 1936, ancient tribal customs and Christian beliefs clash as the autumnal fires celebrating the Harvest God, Lugh, bathe the high grass in golden light and distant music on the radio floats across the fields.
