2021-22 Season: Return, Restore, Renew

Greetings and welcome back to all returning students, faculty and staff, and welcome to new faculty, staff, new transfer students, new grad students, as well as to the class of 2025!

The COVID-19 pandemic still looms and presents a lot of uncertainty — yet there is cautious optimism as well. Many look forward to rekindling community and collaboration to support each other during this new school year. We are eagerly looking forward to inviting live audiences back into our spaces and to have our students once more performing on our stages.
