2019-20 University Theatre Season
The University Theatre is going forward with an innovative alternative to its regular theatre programming. In place of our regularly scheduled live theatre events, theatre faculty and students will cast and produce two exciting performance projects during the fall 2020 semester for our audience to enjoy in safety. Each project is planned to be a fully realized production, whether it’s created remotely from quarantine, rehearsed safely in person on campus, or any combination thereof. Watch this page for details and updates of what we will produce for Spring 2021!
A collage of insanity in isolation. Collaborative Creation by the University Theatre Company. Pairs of students are each given a different diary entry from Gogol's work to interpret, design, stage, and perform with the mentorship of faculty and staff. Video of each segment is curated into a final, single photodrama and aired online for the public. Directed by Lucy Cashion.
A thrilling fairy tale of love, betrayal, jealousy and the redemptive power of forgiveness. Students will learn cutting-edge voiceover acting and audio drama recording techniques to create a professional radio drama recording of Shakespeare’s classic romance that will be recorded with complete live sound effects and broadcast/livestreamed to the public, with panel discussion and lectures and a gala opening-be they virtual or in person with social distance. Directed by Nancy Bell.
Thursday - Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.
