The Theatre Department produces two main stage performances (including a full scale musical), one Theatre Studio Lab production, and one student driven show each academic year. Theatre majors participate in all areas of production.

The theatre student will be given the opportunity to perform and train in a wide variety of genres and styles including Shakespeare, Greek, Musical Theatre, Contemporary Drama, Farce, and Avante’Garde to name a few.

2017-2018 AU Theatre Season:

Mainstage Season: (Perry Theatre)

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
November 10-11 and 15-18, 2017 | 7:30 p.m.
Perry Theatre

Viola loves Orsino. Orsino loves Olivia. Olivia loves Viola. Malvolio loves himself. Love is certainly in the air in Illyria, but nothing is as it seems, especially when twins, sassy servants, a drunk uncle, a pirate, and a merry band of fools are involved. This wise, wacky, and weirdly beautiful comedy about loss, identity and finding love in unexpected places is considered by many to be one of Shakespeare's greatest plays for good reason.

Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine
April 13-14 and 18-21, 2018 | 7:30 p.m.
April 14 and 21, 2018 | 2:30 p.m.
Perry Theatre

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. Come join a Baker and his Wife, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella as they venture Into the Woods to chase their dreams, fight their demons and find their happily ever after.

Theater Studio Season (Theater Studio Lab):

We are pleased to offer this space for student produced work this year. Students will have the opportunity to use the space for Senior Capstone projects, creative research or simply a place to flex their creative muscles in front of an audience. Keep your eye out for upcoming announcements and info!
