Performances & Tickets
As the COVID landscape is continuously changing, let us bring it into a standstill and remind ourselves about Theatre Arts and Dance’s motto: Think. Make. Understand. Engage.
These four words guide our primary mission which is “to educate our students and our audiences about the performing arts and about the social issues and human emotions the arts speak to so powerfully. We are committed to realizing this mission by creating, producing, and studying works of theatre and dance, and performing them publicly for diverse audiences drawn from both the University and the community at large.”
True to this mission, we are pleased to announce that the 2022–23 season which will comprise University Dance Theatre Fall and Spring Concerts as well as BA and BFA theatre students’ engagement with their desire to understand the social issues and human emotions both historically and in the present moment.
We sincerely hope that you will join us this 2022–23 season to celebrate the work of our students, their courage, and their engagement, their performance skills, and their valor.
