University Theatre Fall Season

We’re pleased to announce our revised Fall 2020 theatre season: a collection of smaller-scale shows that are particularly appropriate to our times. With safety being our primary concern, auditions, rehearsals, and live-streamed performances will follow the latest health and safety guidelines from the University and the State of Michigan.  

Our students are excited to make the most of the challenges and opportunities of the year, and we believe that our audiences will be just as inspired, challenged, and entertained as ever by our live-streamed presentations. Tickets for live-streamed performances are available online at  (Ticket Central will not have our tickets or information until we return to in-person performances). Note that tickets are good only for the specified date and time, and no recording will be available.

 We still hope to perform our Spring productions in an in-person setting but will make a final decision when more timely information may better guide our decisions.
