Theater Division Seasons Past

2017-18 Season

Sometimes, season selection seems nothing short of a miracle! The committee is charged to select four or five mainstage shows that serve our student body, performers, designers, and writers, while also considering areas of study and faculty strengths. Each year the committee compiles a season geared to access new plays, study older plays, meet the needs of our students and intrigue a community. Here is a list of the last few seasons:
