Welcome to the 2012 - 13 University Theatre Season
This year, the University Theatre is dedicated to the idea of theatre as a way of seeing. Plays show us the world in new ways while the scenographic arts create new worlds to see. With the 2012–13 University Theatre season, you’ll peer into the woods, gaze on bohemian Paris, and peek behind curtains of intimacy and desire. A cartoon world turns inside out to reveal a dark reality. Four actors transform before your eyes into 140 characters, the unspeakable horror of war is exposed, and an alumni army of angels, punks, and raging queens brings to light stories of lives lived with a deadly disease.
The University Theatre is proud to be an educational theatre dedicated to producing quality productions while nurturing student actors, directors, and designers. We hope you’ll visit and enjoy the glorious view.
