Take a peek at our 2019-2020 season below! 

The 2019-2020 season brochure will be available soon. Consider becoming a season subscriber and receive invitations to special events including backstage tours, receptions and rehearsals. Subscribers also benefit from priority seating, flex-ticketing, exchange privilege and opportunities to engage with with the cast and crew to gain insight into the creativity and process taking place behind the scenes.

While continuing to maintain high production values in its spectacle, our Department fosters a commitment to professional training, critical thinking, diversity and inclusion to enrich our students and our community. We are devoted to growing support for our students through scholarship opportunities and the continued high impact learning experiences provided through our ambitious season production program. To bring greater attention to our students and their mentors, we invite you to SIDE SHOW 2020: an Evening of Student Work. This evening of short presentations will help prepare students for upcoming competitions, conferences and festivals. Donations will directly support these students to enable their travel and presentations to be successful.

Each year, generous patrons and donors like you make it possible for the Department to continue providing this comprehensive education, training, and invaluable experience for our students. We could not achieve this without your incredibly consistent dedication to the program. We need your help to grow our audience base, to highlight the talent and training here and to help us provide opportunities for all of our students to be successful.
