Current Season University Theatre

Let us entertain you with a diverse selection of live productions. Each year our theatre students participate in various productions to gain experience and improve stage presence. They are passionate about performing/entertaining and are eager to show off their creativity for audiences.

Performances take place in Bush Theatre, Townsend Kiva, and Theatre-on-the-Side, all located close to the Bush Theatre ticket windows on the Central Michigan University Campus. For information on our smaller-scale, free, Studio Theatre and other sponsored productions, follow us on social media or visit our Events and Activities webpage.
