Students perform in "Head Over Heels"

University Theatre

Where the classroom meets the stage. We provide students with opportunities to put into practice the lessons they learn in our classrooms, from performance and technical skills to historical knowledge to the role of the arts in grappling with social and cultural change.

Love and Information, by Caryl Churchill

February 9, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 2023, William Inge Memorial Theatre

In Love and Information witness a kaleidoscope of encounters that investigate how humans create meaning and purpose.
