The Department of Theater Arts announces our 2020-2021 season. We stand in solidarity with the struggle for racial justice. Our season reflects our goals to challenge discrimination and raise up marginalized voices. We may gather in person or we may gather online, but we intend to offer shows that challenge, uplift, and move our students and audiences. Please click here to view our solidarity statement.
After careful consideration, we have decided to produce one show in the fall, The Laramie Project by Moisés Kauffman, directed by Johnny Kuntz, in a digital format. Our hope is that the remaining shows in our season will be able to be produced in the spring in-person.
Our decision to produce The Laramie Project digitally does not mean that residential students will have no in-person access to faculty. Faculty who are not in high-risk groups may be able to conduct in-person advising, mentoring, and coaching, safety guidelines permitting. Spingold, our spaces and resources, will be open and accessible to the greatest extent possible under the new safety regulations.
Auditions will take place after the semester begins. We will be in touch with more information as it becomes available.
