University Theatre

The mission of University Theatre is to bring thought-provoking plays that challenge all participants to see and engage with the world around us.  As an academic institution engaged in the arts, we feel we have an obligation to bring plays to the stage that challenge us and make everyone – on stage and off – think about who they are, where they come from, and their role in the world.  We stage a minimum of two fully realized theatrical productions per academic year.  Supported by students and community members, we welcome anyone to audition for our shows as well as help with the many backstage opportunities.
 
If you would like to learn more or to volunteer your time, please contact Dr. Thomas Campbell, director of University Theatre and Assistant Professor of Communication & Theatre Arts.

2018-19 Season

“Weird is Wonderful!”

Theatre comes in as many forms and varieties as any other art form, and this season we are excited to produce two shows that defy linear-realism: Samuel Beckett’s classic existential absurdist play Endgame, and Charles L. Mee’s language-based play bobrauschenbergamerica.
 

ENDGAME

By Samuel Beckett
November 14-17 at 7:30pm
 
Beckett’s 1957 one-act play is a bizarre and wonderful exploration of life, death, past, present, future, nothing and everything.  This play, following the success of Waiting for Godot, helped to solidify Becket as one of history’s most successful playwrights.  Beckett’s absurdism and existentialist angst is on full display as Hamm recounts (probably) his relationship with Clov.

In the words of the playwright: “A wild road trip through our American landscape […] a collage of people and places and music and dancing, of love stories and picnics and business schemes and shootings and chicken jokes and golfing, and of the sheer exhilaration of living in a country where people make up their lives as they go.
