The Theatre Department presents theatre that matters and continues to resound beyond the performance night. We are committed to presenting theatre that stimulates the minds of our audience members while balancing the highest quality production values with material that is courageous in its content, form and execution.

Our productions are often accompanied by symposiums and talk-back discussions, which reflectively delve into the nuances of the scripted work. Productions are supported by our acting, directing, design, world theatre history and contemporary drama classes.
